Walking Monterey Highway

Monterey Highway is a place I have photographed off and on over the years I have been doing Lost San Jose. The motels, the neon, the businesses are all things I have sought out over the years. 

 

Traveler's Unrest. Monterey Highway. San Jose, CA 2011

 

A year ago I decided to focus on Monterey Highway as a singular project, walking the street to photograph not only the things I see, but the people I meet, something that has been new for me and a challenge to learn. In the past year, I have walked as much as 10 miles in a day and have covered from the outskirts of Downtown San Jose to the edge of Gilroy. As the end of the year approaches, I've started the task of sorting through and editing the photos that will make up this project. 

A handful of the earliest images are now in a gallery on this site, but I wanted to share a sneak peek of what's to come. 

 

 

Thank you to everyone who has supported my photography over the years. I will see you in 2016.

Happy holidays!
