Time Lapse: My Hairy Commute / Readying For Whiskerino

Every day, I take the bus from Petaluma to San Francisco. Every year, I grow a beard for the Petaluma Whiskerino contest. This time, I thought I’d combine the two.

I shot most every workday for 2.5 months, except for the days I drove. Not an exact, or smooth, science. But hope you enjoy.
