I am new here and still kind of new to traveling on my own. I was born in Tennessee and spent most of my life there. I am traveling with a wheeled luggage bag for my laptop, my cameras, etc. And a shoulder bag with a few shirts and a coat. I've couchsurfed, stayed in hostels and airbnb, slept outside on a tent, slept on a train, and slept at the Denver International airport once.

I am in Seattle, Washington right now after coming here to take photographs. I have been trying to get certified for Google Street View to be added to their "for hire" index for several months and I finally got approved this week!

I am traveling to Los Angeles, California this week and going to an interview to get work exchange. I also want to try voice acting while I am there. I have never been to California or done voice acting, but I wanted to give it a try and it gives me a new place to take photographs of and expand my portfolio.

That's my introduction. Thanks. :)

Doug Rickard published a book called "A New American Picture" he basically "re-photographed" google street view images and made them his own art. But a lot of the images are pretty interesting, and its back when street view was using a different kind of camera, so the pictures come out pretty spooky, look it up.

Welcome to STP! That's pretty cool taking pics for the google street view - I use this all the time getting around and looking for places. Good luck on your California endeavors!

I see Google street view on the highway sometimes. That would be a pretty great way to travel and get paid.

Good luck to you!

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$100.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

NOT SO FAST on heading to Chicago. I can tell it's a rough place to start over. I applied for another job in Mpls, and see how that goes in 2 weeks. If they take their time, like I don't have my own, bye. But, I'm going to give them a chance.

You ever find your road dawg? I just had mine bail on me before we even left and I'm still going, but I'm not really looking forward to being solo again. Did it before and it just kinda sucked. I can try to meet you wherever you'd want. I'm in the middle of illinois right now. Hmu if you're interested and we can chat and get to know each other before we decide if we should meet up.✌
