Week 5 of #PRIME47 : Was working up in wine country so I wanted to get some vineyard shots but was compelled by the hand made thank you displays locals made for the firefighters who battled the #NAPAFires . During the week I got shots of Dave art in the Dogpatch, a fire station (perhaps subliminally influenced by the Napa shot?) and then shots from the Golden State Pinball Festival (@GoldenStatePin ) including the awesome night tournament, requisite visit to the official fast food of pinball, In-n-Out Burger, and then a throwback #Zima enjoyed by Jonny O! . . . #lodi #PolaroidOriginals #Polaroid #sx70 #polaroidsx70 #instantcamera #instantphoto #filmneverdies #polaroidfilm #instantphotography #makerealphotos #thefutureoffilm #polaroidpicture #filmphoto #slr670s #polaroidcamera #makeportraits #pinball #nightpinball
An early #tbt to the Nunns Fire last year So I had my first fire-season nightmare last night. One of those horrifying, heart-pounding, waking-up-paralyzed-in-terror nightmares. And it got me to thinking (you know, after I quit hyperventilating). Last year, in October, the Napa Valley and Sonoma County saw one of the worst fire events in California’s history. Thousands of people displaced, homes and businesses and livelihoods reduced to charred heaps of ash and rubble. Most people had minutes, if not seconds, to grab their pets and leave, the fires nipping at the heels. Frankly, it makes me tear up just writing it. But that’s not what this post is about. It’s about awareness. Planning. Being realistic. The fire folks in our lives are already saying it’s going to be another bad year and I won’t go into it without a plan. Something like 90% of people don’t have an evac plan, a phone tree or even a bug-out bag. Do you know where you’d go? What would you do with your children? Your animals? Do you have enough trailer space? Do you have a plan B when the shelters are full and won’t take your dogs? The world is changing. Weather events are more extreme. More fires. More hurricanes. Agree with me or not about global warming, everyone needs to have a plan. And so I had an idea. It might not work. But what if we created a Instagram farming-community emergency plan? Get to know other farmers in your area, or even the next state over. People who have trucks and trailers and pasture space. People, who, in an emergency, might be able to lend you a hand. It’s not much, but it’s better than having nothing. My heart aches for those in Oklahoma and the rest of the plains that are dealing with their second huge spring fire. Ranchers always try to help ranchers and it makes me proud to see the rest of the ag community step up, even if the rest of the nation barely notices. But that’s what we do. We plan and we help our neighbors. Here’s hoping the 2018 season is quiet and calm, but if it’s not....Do you have an evac plan? A bug-out bag? | #rhfarms #heritagebreeds #napafires #napastrong #beprepared #emergencypreparedness Photo taken 10/12/2017

Napa, Ca - October 2017- A day after the fires began a very memorable scene with ashes over the floor and the smoked sky with a reddish tint. #napafires #napafiresmoke #napastrong #napavalley #napa #fires #wildfire #ashes #memorable #canon #canonusa #canonglobal #canonteam #canonphotography #canonphoto #canonphotographer #canon5dsr_eos #canon5dsr #canonlens #canonglass
Fire survivor. Fires swept through this historic property on the night of October 8th, destroying all buildings and homes. Everyone living there were woken up with less than three minutes to leave. The damage was so great that they just got off generators this month. This wine was subjected to extreme temperatures, but is still tasting great! The winery is open once again for tastings, and the property is still beautiful. #maxnapatours #napa #napavalley #napastrong #fire #wine #instawine #winesofinstagram #dinner #winetour #winetasting #napafires #syrah #sommelier #sommlife #historicproperty #rebuild #sodacanyon
There have been lots of reminders of the fires this week. I also want to think of it as warmth, beauty and light. #fire #napafires #napafire2017 #firelight #firebeauty #firewarmth #napa
MG hits the City Of Napa - Thankful for all the fire fighters near and far who fought fiercely last October to battle the flames. We are blessed beyond words to have men willing to run towards danger while others flee for their safety. Y’all are some real heroes! #MissionGratitude #CityOfNapa #ThankYou #Heroes #Blessed #Thankful #NapaFires #FireFighters #HeroSquad
Just over 6 months ago, wildfires in Napa and Sonoma Counties changed our communities in so many ways. People are still fighting with insurance companies and many have not found a place to call home yet. This woman lost her home in Santa Rosa , and not long after that, her husband passed away. She is a huge reader and today she replaced her Toni Morrison and Wallace Stegner collections, as well as a dictionary and atlas for reference. She is a symbol of recovery.
#Napafires #WhiteRockVineyards melted wineglass from October. Survived! Love #WhiteRockReserveChardonnay . #WhiteRockClaret #WhiteRockEastBenchCabernet and #WhiteRockLaureateCabernet . You guys Rock!! Love you, love your wines!❤️
Our Atlas Peak vineyard’s first signs of life as these tender buds awake from winter’s dormancy to signal the new growing season, 2 weeks earlier than 2017’s bud break. Absolute heaven! #sillfamilyvineyards #finewine #afterthefire #napafires #napawine
A friend who helped with loads out to the Napa and Santa Rosa fires had his truck stolen last night. Please be on the look out. #gilroy #gilroycalifornia #morganhill #sanmartin #sanjose #salinas #california #napafires #tubbsfire #santarosafirestorm #stolen
Italian cypress in Napa bring memories of travel to Tuscany...that is, until the hills caught fire later that night. #travelphotography #instatravel #napavalley #sthelena #napafires
@foodandwine has a lovely reminder in its April issue. If you want to continue supporting Napa and Sonoma Counties’ wineries, restaurants & hotels, AND their employees following last fall’s fires, “come visit”! 🍷❤️ Also, consider donating to Rebuild Wine Country or UndocuFund.
....and then there are these two. 💕 I've drafted a post featuring them multiple times and either gotten distracted or stop writing because I could no longer see through my tears. Why the tears, you ask? Well, I'll tell ya....If you don't know, on Sunday, October 8th, 2017, multiple wildfires broke out all over the Napa and Sonoma valleys which resulted in devastating loss of property and life. Homes that had taken a lifetime to build were gone in seconds. On this evening, the two pictured here cleared roads where residents were trapped with little regard to their own safety. One of these residents was my sister-in-law and bestie, @jess_isham and my niece. They drove out to safety with fire surrounding them, along with many other residents. This is only one of the many heroic stories of that weekend and it's been very condensed in my version. I cannot express in words the level of gratitude and love that I hold in my heart for you both. . . . Thank you again to all the first responders, to all the neighbors who helped a friend in need, to any and all who reached out and put kindness into the world - and to all who are still doing so every day. We are healing together. 💪🙏 . . . . #napastrong #sonomastrong #thankyou #community #together #napa #napavalley #familyphotography #napaphotographer #firstresponders #napafires #sonomafires #love #humankindness #kindness #loveoneanother #family #couplesphotography #hemlockhousephotography

Thrilled that my documentary “Going Home” will be premiering at the Sonoma International Film Festival! It also received an IMPACT Documentary Award. A huge thank you and congratulations to the wonderful co director, @mcclellan_cameron. Film may very well be the best medium to capture such a vast extent of loss and sorrow; only visual storytelling can do justice in memorializing the triumph of hope in the face of disaster. . . . #drama #documentary #director #emergingfilmmakers   #shortfilm #GoingHomeFilm #NapaFires #HealInArt #ConnectInArt #MindfulArt

A big 60x40 Metal Print purchased as a gift for his Mom! So cool to see up on her wall :) this is only the second one to be printed of this image and I’m thinking about making some of these limited. So get them while you can! And you can now purchase my landscapes directly through my website at www.aileensavagephotography.com (link in my bio)! It’s about the only thing my website has going for it right now since I’m in he process of making a lot of changes. And feel free to DM me if you have any questions! Thank you!

With over 40 casualties, 220,000 acres burned, and 2,800 homes lost, the Napa Fires devastated California’s countryside. I’m proud to announce my latest documentary, “Going Home”, will be playing at the Sonoma International Film Festival next month. It is the story of one family who lost everything...except their memories. Film may very well be the best medium to capture such a vast extent of loss and sorrow; only visual storytelling can do justice in memorializing the triumph of hope in the face of disaster. A big thanks to Cameron McClellan for co-directing this piece with me. #drama #documentary #director #scoutfilmfestival #youthfilm #teenfilm #emergingfilmmakers   #shortfilm #GoingHomeFilm #NapaFires #HealInArt #ConnectInArt #MindfulArt
Our sweet Sully, who survived the fires, is the only one of his litter who's yet to be adopted. He recently completed another surgical procedure repairing the damage around his eyes from the severe burns he's recovering from. What's amazing about him beyond his sheer will to survive, is that he's done so and maintained the most loving disposition. He remains so affectionate and loves human interaction and to cuddle. He's a very special guy. We want to give a huge shout out to Dr. Richard Bachman at #LakeCounty Animal Control who has provided all of Sully's surgeries and medical care while we've provided for his love and daily care. It's been a team effort. Now we need to find Sully his forever family and person. Is it you? You won't find a more loving or loyal friend than Sully. #sonomastrong #lakecountystrong #napafires #sonomafires #rescuecat #rescuecatsofinstagram #abc7bayarea @abc7newsbayarea #specialkitty #blackcatsrule #blackcatsofinstagram #blackcats #sonoma #sonomavalley #adoptdontshop #rescuerocks #bestfriend #sonomavalley
It’s funny to me what can deliver a memory. The bed in my old room at my parents’ house was an antique cast iron number. It appeared in the ruins after the fire as a charred twisted shell of its former self. This is the bed in the cottage we’re staying in. #napafires #winecountryfires #atlasfire #memories
View from the office this afternoon...new green grass in the foreground and the blackened hills that remain from the fires in the background. Optimism is in the air. #napafires #hudsonnapavalley #hudsonranch
A little trail run buddy 🦌 Not a big fan of running, but sometimes I get an itch to trail #runinnature I haven’t done this run since the #napafires in October as the trails have been closed . Went running for the heck of it once in NJ in Dec ❄️Yet, somehow I was able to jump back on the trail and beat my personal best time 🤔 It’s all about the 🏋🏼‍♂️🤸‍♀️🧘‍♀️ Strength, Agility, and Breath #skylinewildernesspark #fitnessmotivation #fitfam #wellness #dietitian #lowcarb
Attempted trail run ended up being 90% hiking. Definitely too technical for a #rookietrailrunner but I had a blast, loved the view, hope I managed to stay out of all the poison oak, and only fell once. Still scary to see the damage caused by the #napafires a few months back. #trailrunning #hiking #optoutside #tooksomewrongturns #climbthathill #naparunning #skylinewildernesspark #sugarloafpeak #runfreeordiehard

Yesterday, the sun popped up over Mauna Kea in a cloudless sky, hazy from the smoke of a controlled burn that got a little out of control. The smoke has been thick on and off for three days now. We were getting flashbacks to last fall’s #napafires . No idea about the green flare there, but it’s cool. Is thee a sunrise version of the green flash? #sunrise #maunakea #smoke #controlledburn #greenflash #hawaiisunrise

Skyline Park volunteering today. #beautifuldestruction #napafires #volunteering
After the destruction of the #northbayfires , the resilient @sugarloafpark is re-opening! Starting today (Feb 1), you can visit this sprawling open space’s oak/fir woodland, spend time in its’ redwood forest and creek, or witness fire-following wildflowers. As you can see from these photos (courtesy of @sugarloafpark ), the park has undergone some massive changes in the past few months. Come see for yourself! #baynature #sugarloaf
ThrowBack to the last time Billionaire Boardroom got together in San Francisco and enjoyed 3 days of networking, drinking wine, dining, and riding a trolley all over the city. Excited for our trip coming up in Playa Del Carmen!
Time to Wine down and wow, many happy a #winewednesday to you 😍 #PhilippeLangner a mere mortal that trained alongside #jacquesboissenot and #michelrolland ... His wines are stylistically hybrids between #Bordeaux (structure) and #Napa (fruit and generosity). Sadly his home and office were caught in the 2017 #NapaFires loosing everything. The best way to support Philippe and his family is to enjoy the wine! However those wise among you will grab their @coravin and extend the life of your bottle, sip by sip! .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🍷 2013 #Anatomy 📍 #hesperianwinery 🍇 #CabernetSauvignon 🌎 #NapaValley , #california . #onceuponawine #winerylovers #winetime #wineweirdos #instadrink #wine #vino #vinho #wineoclock #alwayslovewine #lovewine #ilovewine #wein #wino #wineo #happyhour #instawine
I had the blessing of spending a weekend away with some great friends last weekend. Swipe to see some of my adventures. Had a beautiful view, wish I could relax on this porch all the time, found my dream house, got a refresher course on CA history, visited one of CA’s missions, witnessed the devastation of the October fires in Napa and Sonoma, and had an amazing brunch with my girls at the El Dorado Hotel in downtown Sonoma. ————————————————— #weekendinsonoma #vinyardview #screenedinporch #dreamhouse #cahistory #firstCAflag #Californiamissionsonoma #napafires #eldoradohotelandkitchen #thecreativesister #girlsweekendtradition

Jeremiah and Sully are two sweet cats that were rescued from the fires. Sadly, they were badly burned but are healing nicely. They are super affectionate and love to be held. You should hear them purr! We'd love to see these two adopted together but finding a loving home for each of them would be wonderful. Their brother JT has already found his forever home. These kitties been have through a lot and really deserve some loving people! #cafires #rescuecat #rescuecatsofinstagram #catsofinstagram #nunsfire #tubbsfire #atlasfire #NapaFires #LakeCounty #lakecountyfires #adoptmeplease #sonoma #sonomavalley #specialkitty #specialneedspet #PetsLifeline #specialcats #adoptdontshop #sonomastrong #napastrong #lakecountystrong
