Travel is about people as much as it is about the landmarks and the sights.
When I travel I often find myself camera in hand wondering the streets and introducing myself to others. In the summer of 2014 I cycled along the Route 1 in California with a friend, my camera and a single white sheet to be used as a backdrop. All the 400 miles we cycled I took photos of strangers I met on the way. Here is a selection of the characters of California.
