A few more pictures from the trip to Oahu earlier this year; this time some slightly abstract snaps of a few buildings in Honolulu.
I had a few minutes to spare on my way to the UK on a recent trip and couldn’t resist braving the heat outside and get a few pictures of the Theme building which is situated at the centre of the LAX airport complex.
This is an iconic building and classic mid-century ‘googie’ design; I’d love to get inside someday.
All pictures shot on Olympus Pen-F Digital
The other Saturday I completed my chores in good time and as ‘S’ was away for a few days I decided I had earned a few hours to take myself to Downtown LA for a photo walk.
I do like shooting DTLA as there is plenty of interesting buildings and people about to keep me occupied. Typically I would always take my Pen-F digital as well as a film camera (just in case) but for this day I decided to go 100% film. I did still take two cameras the Voigtländer Vitomatic II and the Bessa RF, the latter as it only had a couple of frames remaining which I wanted to finish off.
The Vitomatic was loaded with Fomapan Classic 100; I have a few rolls of this and trying to see if I like it.
It was a lovely sunny say and I centered myself in the area around the Bradbury building; famous for many films including Bladerunner.
I spent a couple of hours recently photographing a couple of buildings in downtown Burbank; City Hall I have already posted about today is the Post Office on Olive Ave.
The building is an Mediterranean-styled building containing elements of the Spanish Colonial Revival, the Mission Style, and the Pueblo Style. It was designed and designed and built in the mid to late 1930s Continue reading “Burbank Main Post Office Building”
As I mentioned here I stopped by this building earlier this week to get a few pictures as I find it an interesting building. I’ve always been interested in churches as architectural subjects as they often differ from the norm. Here in California particularly they often stand out from their surrounding neighbours as they are commonly in commercial or industrial areas where boring cubes dominate.
I was lucky enough to get there as the sun was getting lower in the sky which gave me some nice light and shadows.
Here are a few images Continue reading “Church – Alameda Ave”
I’ve been past this church a few times and yesterday I finally stopped to take some photos, here’s one from the session last night
I didn’t have quite the right lens to get the angle I wanted on this but I’m reasonably happy with the result.
Investigated downtown LA last weekend. This impressive building looks to be empty, I’d love to get a look around inside. It was put up for sale in 2015, not sure if it sold at all. It was originally built for the Sun Realty company (Sun seemed to build a lot of interesting buildings in their day. Continue reading “Garfield Building, LA”
