It’s been a little over a month since my family and I relocated to Los Angeles. Things are going very well, and we’re really excited to jump into life over here!
A couple weeks prior to our move, I made a solo trip to LA to prepare the home for our official relocation. I drove down HWY 1 with my cameras and some film and took as many photos as I could. I arrived in Monterey, CA around noon, and slowly made my way down south until sunset and created a “drive-by” photo log of what I saw. Time was of constraint since I needed to get to my destination later that evening.
It normally takes me approximately six hours to drive down from the bay area to Los Angeles, but this time it took me well over ten hours due to all the stops I made. I was tired, but an opportunity like this won’t present itself again for a while!
Things went generally well, but never perfect. If there was one thing I could have wished for was a nice spot for sunset. I made my way to the SLO area for sunset, but was quickly met with intense fog which ruined my plans. I also wished I had more time to linger in and around other coastal spots within Central California, but time was limited.
All of the pictures I took were shot on:
Contax G2, 35
Mamiya 645, 120
Mamiya 7, 120
The film stocks I chose for the trip were:
Kodak Portra 400
Kodak Portra 800
Solaris Ferrania 400 (expired)
Anyways, here are some stills from the short trip. Comment below and let me know what you think!
