#tbt Cali '11

August 2011

I was 17, about to start my last year of high school, and had no idea that I would be pursuing a career in photography. 

A couple of my best friends and I signed up for a 5 day tour of Los Angeles through our school, and it was all we could think about for the year leading up to it. We bused around the city seeing sights like the Hollywood sign, Hollywood Boulevard, the Santa Monica Pier, drove down Rodeo Drive, and toured the Warner Bros. Studios. 

Flash forward 7 years: I stumble across a memory card in my sister's old point and shoot and find photos that I hadn't seen since the year I took them. Yeah, a lot of them were super touristy with people standing in the way and not so great compositions, and it was before my first dslr, but I had so much fun going through them all and editing them and reliving this trip. 

Enjoy a few of my favouites!

Check back next week for Cali part II!

Expired: Places

Last month Kelsey, Michaella, and I took a road trip to St Andrews. When we went last April I took a million photos on my DSLR, but then didn't really do anything with them. So, this time I only took my film camera, and a roll of expired film (because, honestly, what else do I shoot on?). Here are my 24 exposures!


When we arrived in the morning, we went straight to Water St where we could do a little shopping and take photos on the dock. It was super foggy out and a little creepy, but mostly just beautiful

It didn't take long for the sun to come out though, so we went to a cute little pizza place for lunch, stopped by our favourite candy store, and headed for the beach! 

Our last stop was the beautiful Algonquin Resort, where we got stuck in a short downpour

And with our day coming to an end, my last three exposures were through the windshield on our way home
