Last summer, in 2011, I took a road trip with a few people to Los Angeles, Calif. From Phoenix, Ariz., that’s about a six-hour ride, but to us, time flew by with an incredible concert (The Avett Brothers) impending and a few days of exploring the concrete jungle of Downtown Los Angeles just around the corner.
I’ve always thought of the City of Angels as a trend-setting, inspirational city with quite the personality. And I wanted to capture the vibrant city of L.A. with a camera that never fails to create funky, spontaneous and in-the-moment images of any journey I happen to take with my trusty Diana Mini in hand. What’s also unique about this camera is you can multiple expose photos and overlap them, creating an image with even more mystique.
Check out my images taken in Downtown Los Angeles and at Angels Knoll park. If you’ve seen “(500) Days of Summer,” you’ll know exactly where we spent our afternoon — on and around the “(500) Days of Summer” bench. And yes, the bench was clearly marked so we couldn’t miss it!
