Now I remember why I came back to California

Posted by Monterey John (Hollister, CA, United States) on 17 April 2011 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Been out of pocket for several days culminating in a nice event shoot in Salinas on Friday evening.

This image is NOT one of my landscapes :)

This young lady was one of the models at the Monterey County Young Professionals mixer at the Stainbeck Center in Salinas, CA. There is a gallery of shots from this fun event here: http://monterey-john-photographer.com/Style-Mixer-Monterey-County-Young-Professionals.html
