reorganizing files and photos tonight and found a bunch of things i’ve never shared, so here are a few from the los angeles diaries. more b-side photos soon, since i haven’t developed a roll of film in ages.

from murren, we took a cable car up to the top of schilthorn (where james bond’s “on her majesty’s secret service was filmed). the ride was about 10 minutes, and the cable car operator plays the james bond theme song as the car behinds its climb.
the restaurant is full of all sorts of memorabilia, and the place mats are decorated with 007′s and silhouetted images of james bond. we ordered wine and german beer, and i ended up ordering spaghetti, when i really should have tried the schnitzel. by the time we were done eating, the clouds moved in, and most of the tourist left since the view of the alps couldn’t be seen anymore. i actually liked the clouds better–it was surreal sitting on the rocks, 9,744 ft up, while the white fog sped past. we spent over an hour hiking to the furthest point, taking photos and videos, sitting and talking, and staring over the edge.
before making our way down to bagni eden in monterosso al mare, italy, i picked up an old underwater disposable camera from one of the stands lining the main road. most of the photos didn’t come out,
and the ones that did were blurry. still, i’m glad i have these quick moments to remember this day by–it was the first time i swam in the ocean in almost 10 years.

we went through all of our stuff in storage finally, and i picked up my old photos. going through a lot of them, and finding some i’ve never posted here before.
scenes from a gloomy day near the ocean, and a little beta. can’t believe how much has happened in just one year, these days feel so far away.
finally getting around to posting these from the last roll i shot in my contax. i haven’t really been shooting much lately, mainly because of how expensive it is for film and processing here! sad but so very true.
on a happy note, ron and i are going on vacation this coming friday! it’s all i’ve been thinking about lately, along with getting everything done before leaving. we never went on a honeymoon, so we’re thinking this could be it, 5 years later on an early anniversary (the real date is july 12). i’ll definitely have photos to share when we get back! but for now, here’s some black and white film from the past few weeks.
