This holiday season, I spent a week visiting my family in New England, which somehow ended up being colder than Norway! Luckily I was fortunate enough to be able to spend the next week in Los Angeles. Staying mostly in Venice Beach and Santa Monica, it was hard not to catch some of the laid back California vibes while enjoying the 25 Celsius and sunny weather in January. For the trip I brought the Contax T2 as my main shooter. The day before flying back to Norway I decided to do a quick video around the Santa Monica boardwalk putting the little workhorse through the paces.
The following video is one roll of film, shot start to finish in Santa Monica with the Contax T2. The film used was your average drugstore Fuji Superia 200 speed (24 exposures). The only rule was to photograph anything that caught my eye and not hold back.
Here are all the photos viewed larger. I had them developed and scanned at Oslo Foto and didn't apply any further post processing.
