Welcome to the Lost in Los Angeles series, an attempt to wander the City of Angels daily and share with you the oddities and awe-inspiring aspects that catch my eye, with a goal to keep shooting photos every day. Sometimes we have lulls in creativity, or times when we’d rather not leave the house for two days during a pizza and Netflix phase. I know I do.
Sometimes we have lulls in creativity, or times when we’d rather not leave the house for two days during a pizza and Netflix phase. I know I do sometimes. But we must persist!
I want to continue to shoot every day and force myself to stop looking at my phone constantly and observe the world around me. To keep the creative juices flowing. Given that Los Angeles is such a strange, beautiful, and fascinating place — I’ll have plenty to share.
This series may evolve into a “Lost in…” wherever the heck I am at the time, but for now, it’ll feature snaps each week from whatever device I have handy — be it my iPhone, Canon DSLR, or my 35mm film camera. Enjoy and leave a thought!
Photographer’s Note: Most of the photos in this series were snapped on my iPhone, which is proving to be quite a perfect tool for capturing the randomness of Los Angeles. Though DSLR’s will always beat it in quality, and my film camera will have that gritty street feel, the iPhone is my quick trigger and proved the old saying that “the best camera is the one you have on you“. These photos are from my walks around Santa Monica and the mashup of beauty and urban decay, and a few from sights around downtown Los Angeles. Many of the things that caught my eye this week were a mixture of monochrome, and the prevalent teal color I keep seeing all over.
