The LA Gallery

Normally, I only cherry-pick the images I post on this blog, because this is not a travel blog, but rather about photography itself. However, when I went through the pictures I took last year in Los Angeles, in particular the ones I had taken with the Leica MP and a roll of Kodak Portra 160, I thought although they will never win a price, they are still a good reflection of what LA feels like. So here you have it.

All images are untouched (only one is leveled, because as usual I couldn’t hold my camera straight :)).

Feast

I believe I had already mentioned that we went for lunch to the Santa Cruz Pier? And it turned out to be the place to have a proper feast. Although the whole pier felt like time-warped from the 1950s into nowadays the food selection was certainly superb. No matter where you turned you saw fresh seafood and fish everywhere. Not sure if they also served the seals that were resting peacefully under the pier :).

Santa Cruz

We are still on the Pier in Santa Cruz. Considering it was end of April it was unusually warm already. But fortunately in particular Northern California had seen considerably more rain than in recent years. So chances are high that we might not see a drought as bad as in previous years. Would be a great relief to the region.
