LOST IN LOS ANGELES VOL. 1 BANNER

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 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: All of these photos from today (03.30.17) were snapped after spending hours in a café working on articles. From my new favorite work spot, Lo.Cal in Santa Monica, I wandered 6 miles around the city looking for camera shops to buy film at. Alas, I found none that weren’t trying to rip me off ($17…really?!) but I zig-zagged my way through alleyways and found so many random objects that caught my eye. Most seemed as though they were left behind, but seemed not so out of place. Unfortunately, that taco piñata wasn’t a random find, I discovered it inside of a Salvation Army. Keep a look out for that popping up places around Los Angeles!

All of the photos were taken with my iPhone 6 and edited using a custom filter I created in Lightroom.
