A Look Back | Mission San Fernando Rey de España

These photos were shot in 2012 on a visit to Mission San Fernando, located 25 miles north of Los Angeles. This mission is the 17th of the 21 religious outposts built in California from 1769 to 1834. We walked around the complex, and visited the museum before making our way to the church. As you exit the church, there’s a pathway that leads to a memorial garden and burial site of legendary comedian Bob Hope.

All photos photos taken with Horizon 202 on Kodak Gold 100

Saturday Walk #03

For this walk, I explored a section of the route that I take on the way to work. The auto repair shop went out of business a few years ago, and the building looked run-down with its facade covered in graffiti. But the building also has beautiful murals painted on its walls.

2018 | January FP4 Party

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.

All photos were taken with Fuji GS645S

Here’s a few of my favorites.



2017 | An afternoon at Marina del Rey

We had a late lunch and went on a relaxing stroll on the harbor front. It was a great way to end the weekend.

2017 | Saturday Walk #02

The Fuji GS645S is becoming my favorite camera for my walks. I get 14 or 15 shots per roll, which allows me to finish the roll on the same day and forces me to think carefully before clicking the shutter.

2017 | Little Tokyo 02

After months of waiting, the Ferrania P30 Alpha that I ordered finally arrived. I shot my first roll during the Obon Festival at Nishi Hongwanji Buddhist Temple. On a hot Sunday afternoon, I headed out to Little Tokyo and made it a point to park my car a few blocks away from the venue. It gave me an opportunity to do a bit of photowalk on a section of Little Tokyo I usually don't venture to.
