2012 was a slow year for me in regards to my usual picture-taking adventures. Yeah, there’s a decent sized bucket of unprocessed film with all kinds of thought-provoking images to uncover. But it’s nothing like in years past. I guess being jumped by 3 dudes on Halloween, harassed by many, and unlawfully detained by police for taking pictures in public is just too tiresome for this ol’ dog. Despite that, I did what everybody else is doing nowadays (privately, I was told I should follow the beaten path more often), so I tried my best at raising my digital photography street-cred by snapping a few pics with my Hipstamatic equipped iPhone.
It was fun and pretty deece for some picture-taking, but it’s nothing like shooting with meat and potatoes, B&W film.
Be warned though.
Los Angeles can be a gritty and gross place, and I tend to focus on that kind of stuff. Especially if it’s lying on the ground, which is where all the good stuff hangs out.
