Walking DTLA with a Mamiya C330

It was my birthday last week and my fiancee asked me what would I like to do.  I didn’t really have anything that I could really think of other than photography time.  So, she agreed to accompany me on a photography walk downtown in LA and as she was looking for a few things we started in the ‘fashion district’.

My fiancee is someone who likes to have a plan and ideally an itinerary, by the very least a goal to aim for.  By contrast I am happy to wander aimlessly just looking about and seeing what I see.

Cameras: Miranda Sensorex

I mentioned this a couple of times in recent posts here and here.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I have put two films through this camera and it has quickly become a favourite.  I have been eyeing up Mirandas for some time but I didn’t really have what I felt was a justification so not taken the plunge and then I saw this one for $20 and thought “why the hell not?”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It arrived shortly afterwards and although its not the cleanest example it’s in pretty good condition. Continue reading “Cameras: Miranda Sensorex”

Haven’t been able to post much in the last week due to an emergency;  thought I would just post this image which I took in Germany with the Vitomatic

The virtually empty Grand Avenue shopping mall in Milwaukee

We stepped into this glorious old shopping mall yesterday which was devoid of any stores apart from TJMax (same as TKMax if you are from the UK) and a fruit n veg cart. It’s a shame that this has become just a walkway between the carpark and another mall, hopefully they will be able to turn it around; it did look like some work was in progress.

Only took a few snaps as we were on a mission. 

The Guardians

I recently had time for a few shots around Burbank city centre and as it was dark I took my tripod to stand my Mamiya C330 on.

This shot was taken outside the Police and Fire department building and is of a large bronze statue which is a tribute to the Fire and Police officers of Burbank.  It is by noted artist Shiela Cavalluzzi and was erected around 1998.

I’ve taken a low angle focussing on the firefighter with the Police officer hidden behind.
