PAIGE NELSON

My name is Paige.

I'm an aspiring photographer with an insatiable curiosity and an appetite for the fantastic.

This blog is dedicated to my greatest passion- photography. All of the photos on here are mine unless otherwise stated.

Moult on Flickr.Via Flickr:
When birds change their feathers it’s called moulting. Moulting is a process done regularly by birds to replace old feathers with new, healthy feathers. 
That’s exactly where I am in my life right now. Out with the old, in with the new. :)

These old wooden trains at the rail yard were the coolest. #paigenelsonphotography #abandoned #railyard #train #rustic #hiddensandiego #jacumba

Take Me Away on Flickr.Via Flickr:
This has been sitting on my desktop untouched for a couple weeks now. I went up to Julian with Andrew on one of our days off. It was SO windy…this shot was hard to get, especially with the reflector (AKA car visor) flapping everywhere.
I’ve been so busy this month— graduation, moving and finding a job. It’s officially summer…forever.
I’ve been so uninspired since my 365 ended. I’m thinking about starting a 52 weeks project starting next month to get the creative juices flowing again.

Black Wave on Flickr.Via Flickr:
I went to Sunset Cliffs last weekend with Andrew because I’ve been missing shooting regularly. 
The tide was low revealing all these wonderful sea caves and outcroppings…but the only way down to the shore was scaling the cliff. There’s always been a rope tethered to a rock for people to go up and down an eight foot section of the cliff, but someone decided to be a jerk and take it with them.
Well we decided to go anyway. I made it about half way down using foot holds and handholds before I lost my grip and fell. I scraped my arm pretty good and was covered in dust but it didn’t hurt too much. :P
I have another photo from the shoot this day. I’ll also be posting the before and after on my Facebook page so check it out!I only need 56 more likes on page before I draw print winners. Go enter if you haven’t already! :)

I’m quite fond of these upside-down twisty poses I suppose…here’s that abandoned car I was talking about. :) We’re still trying to figure out how it came to rest up in the hills…

It feels strange to upload something without a number attached to it.
I met up with Seth Rader and a couple others on Saturday and went on a little photo adventure in Santee. It was nice to hang out with some creative minds. Hopefully we will all go exploring again soon.
More photos to come throughout the week!
