This weekend we went out on a surprisingly cold evening to see the lantern display at the LA Arboretum. I took my Olympus Pen-f digital fitted with the 7artisans 25mm lens. (These images are resized for web JPEGs straight out of the camera as I am without photo editing capability this week)
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.

Roll 13 was another outing for the little Vito C which is now light-leak free. Actually I loaded this roll of FujiFilm Fuji Pro 400 a few weeks ago and took a shot here and there which is how I am likely to use this camera going forward; just a camera to keep handy.
My wife and I have a certain fondness for otters – sea otters to be specific (although European and fresh water otters are just as nice but less accessible for us in California). We have seen otters many times in the various aquariums we have visited and love to share pictures with each other we find online.
Last month we planned a visit to Monterey and the Aquarium there, which has a good otter rehab and release program. Continue reading “Pictures of otters!”
A few more photos from Film #4 of The Thirty Six (Ilford Delta 400 in Voigtländer Prominent).
These were shot in the waiting area outside of Disney’s Magic Kingdom and California Adventure parks. I was waiting outside whilst my wife was inside doing a few quick errands (I know that sounds odd but when your wife is a Cast member and you live close by, these things happen).
Anyway, it was sunny (briefly) and I of course had my camera with me so I took the opportunity to get some shots. Continue reading “Not in Disneyland (#4 of The Thirty Six)”
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.
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”
