April was Yellow

This is the fourth post in my series for Colours of 2018, focussing on specifoic colours for each month of the year. April was the colour of Yellow.

My sunglasses on the passenger seat; I liked how the sun was hitting them.

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.

Joshua Tree camping trip – Pt 1: Wall Street Mill Trail

Last weekend was Labour Day weekend here in the USA which means we get an extra day off (if you are in the UK this would be described as a Bank Holiday Weekend).

We decided to take our 1969 Travel Trailer (Caravan) for it’s first trip following the sprucing up we gave it earlier in the summer and decided on an area we have enjoyed before; Joshua Tree. This time we would be camping and we were also to be joined by some friends for the weekend. Continue reading “Joshua Tree camping trip – Pt 1: Wall Street Mill Trail”

Still here

Not sure but I think this old car is waiting to be rescued or at least for some attention.  Spotted it hiding in the trees in Joshua Tree

Cachuma Lake and Solvang

This weekend myself and S took our 1969 Prowler (towed by our 1990 Bronco) on our first expedition to camp at Cachuma Lake.  All went reasonably well, we had some issues but generally it was a success.

Day 1

The journey up was pretty uneventful though it was scary as hell Continue reading “Cachuma Lake and Solvang”

Saw this little fella (a Fence Lizard I think) sunbating whilst hiking on Verdugo mountain at the weekend

Garfield Building, LA

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.
