Los Angeles 35MM

It was sad to leave Paris. I went to the Eiffel Tower for one last time to grab an espresso and watch the long boarders cruise. I had all the time in the world that day since my flight was at 11:30 in the evening.

The minute I left the hostel I told myself, “I’m going to carry and drag my enormous luggage AGAIN.*sigh*” I was really stingy that day and I was not willing to pay 10 euros for a metro ticket just to get to the airport. So, I thought of using my 3-day Paris Visite pass which had a day of validity left and tail gated an old lady at the last stop. Please don’t do this! I heard the security is very keen about this and I was just lucky. And after all, I needed my 10 euros for a decent dinner at the airport.

After more than 17 hours of flying, dealing with a drunk man next to me and a long layover in Moscow, I arrived in L.A.

Here are the photographs I took and let me know what you think!

Going around L.A. is really easy without a car. You can get a reloadable tap card at Ralph’s which can be used in buses and metro. I did this a couple of times and the TAP Metro card is only $7 for an unlimited day pass. That includes access to Hollywood Boulevard, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, China Town, DTLA and a whole lot more!

The Last Bookstore

Downtown is one of my favorite places to visit. There are so many characters and quirky stores like this one. I have a lot stock photographs for my Instagram that I took here! I really like the…I don’t want to say hipster but “Old Soul” vibe here.

I’m really happy with the photographs I took here. I used an expired Kodak film in most of the shots but unfortunately I didn’t get the look that I was going for which is slightly distorted or vintage. It’s pretty decent I think, just like a fresh film roll.

Check out the videos I took in L.A. below!

I’ll end it here and we’re off to the next destination! Manila!
