These photos were shot almost seven years ago during a trip to Grand Canyon West. Our cabin was located farthest from the dining hall, so we had to take a short walk before and after meals. On the way back to the cabin, we took a longer route and wandered around the ranch.
These photos were shot almost 7 years ago during a trip to Grand Canyon West. I was planning to experience Skywalk, but I could not get over my fear of heights. It was still a great trip, I enjoyed being away from the city, and was more than happy to just walk around and take photos.
Last December, I received two rolls of Ilford FP4+ in 120 size from my EMULSIVE Secret Santa. I prefer to shoot ISO 400 films, but this year I wanted to try out slower films, and so I put my gift to good use by participating in my first FP4Party on Twitter. Participants of the party will shoot Ilford’s FP4+ during the first week of the month, and post them on Twitter during the 3rd week of the month. The photos were taken during my Saturday morning walk. I made a quick stop on an area near my workplace and took some photos of murals before heading out to Chinatown.
My first photography outing for 2018 was the Tournament of Roses’ Showcase of Floats. After work, I hurriedly went home to grab my cameras, then my nephews and I took the train to Pasadena.
The Tournament of Roses also known as the Rose Parade is held in Pasadena on New Year’s Day or January 2, (if New Year’s Day falls on a Sunday). The main stars of the parade are the elaborately designed, flower-covered floats. This year’s theme was Making A Difference. After the parade, the floats are put on display and for a fee, people can see them up close.

We spent about 20 minutes looking at the aircraft display outside Hill Aerospace Museum. We were pressed for time and needed to get back on the road again. I could only manage to shot a few frames.

We stopped by Jackson Hole, Wyoming on our way to Salt Lake City. We saw Grand Teton as we made our way into the city center. We had a quick lunch and checked out some of the shops nearby the restaurant. After an hour and a half, we’re back on the road again.
