I want to start a new tradition here on Little Big. Once a month I’d like to feature a guest photographer for my Follow Friday posts. Today’s guest photographer is my dear friend of one million years Justin Walton. He’s a nerdy dude whose married to one of my bestest friends and father to one of the cutest little boys ever to sink a ship made of Legos, Kingston. I once saw him tongue-kiss an owl. He loves video games, D&D, and photography. He can make a mean lemon bar, quote Adventure Time with the best of them, and has put up with my shit for nearly twenty years. Here are some photos they took while on a trip to Santa Cruz last summer.
Have a great weekend!
