Downtown L.A., as much as I publicly say I don’t like you anymore, you never seize to amaze me, and you somehow make me fall in love with you over and over again. After twenty five years of living in and around you, I keep finding new angles to photograph you in, most of the time, its from places I seem to walk right past. But, with my legs getting better and with new found friends who like me, share the love of film photography, I’ll be walking your streets more often this year and creating soft, glowing portraits of you, as these. It’s funny how I often criticize others for photographing in the came location, to only find myself constantly photographing La Placita Olvera (street) every time inspiration kicks in. Perhaps it's because I’ve had an emotional connection to this place since first grade, as this was the location of my very first LAUSD field trip. And yes, these are the images that sparked my creativity again hence the new website design and (hopefully) consistent blog post updates on my weddings, travels and current editorials, shot on nothing but old school, analog 35mm film.
