{personal} santa monica pier

It's been many years since I last used color film in my Holga camera. Black and white film has always produced such wonderful results that I couldn't bear to shoot with anything else. However, almost exactly a year ago I was planning on a little excursion to the Santa Monica Pier. The bright and colorful Ferris wheel and Pacific Park were begging to be shot in color. So I ordered some film, set out to the pier, took a roll of pictures, recently sent my film to be developed, and now I'm finally sharing them on here. I love the vintage-looking results and how they evoke nostalgic memories of long summers, arcade machines, cotton candy, corn dogs and warm California days (even though it was cold and windy at the time). Enjoy!
