The rest of my Grand Canyon trip photos // Contax T3 mixed in with Contax 645 // Kodak Portra 160 & 400.

Long time no see! I finally got around to posting the rest of my trip photos. I processed 1/2 of these photos at a pro lab nearby but don’t really like the scans. Does anyone have a lab they love? I’ve tried a few different ones in Hollywood and Pasadena, oh and also: Walgreens (haha). Still on the lookout for a good one though, so I’d love to hear your experiences.

It’s summer! The A/C has been blasting inside while I edit photos during the week, and the weekends consist of summery foods, drinks, and sunshine! I love LA for it’s weather alone!

Abbot Kinney for brunch at Hal’s Bar and Grill

Abbot Kinney is so close to us, I don’t know why we don’t go down there more often to eat. I really want to try GTA, it looks so yummy.

      oh weird, i just stared at it for a really long time and it was like an optical illusion! i had to stand on that rock ’cause i’m way short! and when i got the photo back i noticed ron was awkward hugging me, kept laughing about that hahah. i got a contax t3 and love it! been only using that lately. it’s just really convenient, so glad i have it. :)) hope all’s well!

    My family used to have a house near the grand canyon. Ah, those were such beautiful days. <3

    Those are some gorgeous shots! I’ve been to the Grand Canyon before awhile ago for a family vacation but my dad forgot to put film in the camera so we’ll never know how those pictures would have turned out
