A Look Back | Hualapai Ranch

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.

Photos were shot with a Lomo LCA on MW Gekko.

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 | Don King Western Museum

I can’t remember if we stopped by Sheridan, Wyoming on the way to or back from Yellowstone. I did not take any notes on this trip and so the days are all jumbled up in my head. While in Sheridan, we went to visit Don King Western Museum. It also serves as a saddlery so we got a glimpse of the saddle maker’s shop and tools. According to the museum attendant, it takes about a month or sometimes even longer to make a saddle. It all depends on the saddle makers’ level of experience and the intricacy of the saddle’s design.

2017 | Mount Rushmore

The second stop on our South Dakota trip was Mount Rushmore. I really enjoyed seeing the beautiful Black Hills landscape as we drove up the mountain. It was mid afternoon when we arrived and I was feeling a bit tired. We’ve been traveling for days and we still had a few more days of travel ahead. I didn’t hike up the Presidential Trail instead I took photos as I walked around the observation deck and amphitheater.

2017 | Crazy Horse Memorial

We spent a few hours in South Dakota, and visited Crazy Horse Memorial. The museum offers van rides that can take visitors to the top of the carving and see Crazy Horse up close. Since our time was limited, we settled for a walk around the museum and took photos of the monument from the viewing deck.

2017 | Petersen Automotive Museum

I can’t recall the last time I visited the Petersen. But I wanted to visit it again after its $90 million dollar renovation. I opted to add the Vault tour when I purchased my ticket. The Petersen’s Vault has 150 cars which includes a Mercedes used by Saddam Hussein, a Popemobile, and a Ferrari given by Enzo Ferrari to Henry Ford II. The highlight of the tour is the Round Door Rolls, a 1925 Rolls-Royce Phantom 1 Jonckheere Coupe. Unfortunately, photography is not allowed in the Petersen Vault, but you can read about the Round Door Rolls here. During my visit, the Art of Bugatti and Keith Haring’s Art Cars were on display.
