I decided to venture downtown and take some shots with an older camera, one that I have found among a treasure trove of old Polaroids, 8mms and even ANCIENT instant cameras I have no idea how to operate.
It's a sweet relic, somewhere between a "point-and-shoot" and a true DSLR. I just wanted to capture the beautiful subtleties of my new neighborhood, in a new way. Turns out, the pictures look ALMOST as good as a DSLR. Bloggin' on a budget, folks!
|As I mentioned before, all electrical boxes are painted by independent artists, all here in the East Art District. This one might be my favorite.|
|OH HELL TO THE YEAH.|
|The wall outside Hamburger Mary's. Some of my favorite queens have actually signed this thing!|
|Oh yes, there will be cocktails!|
|My current obsession with succulents has taken over my mind.|
|I imagine my BFF Autumn would DIE over this building.|
|Good way to sell a car: chalkboard paint as signage!|
I love walking around downtown, it's just hard for me...because I have a tendency to get lost. Also, random strangers will peek their heads out of buildings and look at you like you work for TMZ. "I'm taking a picture of a plant, lady! CHILL!"
I took a bunch of cute shots, and I will share more with you tomorrow. I have a giveaway planned for this week...I am just waiting for the merchandise to be forwarded to my new address. Here's a hint: it helps you get drunk. I figure, that's all you need to know.
