You may have wondered why there was no Photo of the Day yesterday. Well, I happened to be out of town enjoying the scorching heat, massive crowds and great music that epitomize the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
I left my cameras at home so I could really enjoy the break, but I pulled out the iPhone on occasion and shot some photos with the Hipstamatic app.
One of the most amazing things about Coachella is the sheer amount of people at the show, as seen in the photo above. For the remaining photos, I wanted to share the simpler side of Coachella — the quiet moments you can really only take in by turning your head to the sky and the surrounding mountains.
