Creating is easy nowadays. It’s easy to pull out a camera or phone and snap something so that you can smile about it later.
The idea that you can cherish your captured moment is why I fell in love with photo taking at such an early age. I love reliving life through my snaps. Plain and simple.
I recently picked up a vintage Mamiya C33 and have been playing with it whenever I can in my short off-season. When I pick it up it feels like I am holding the past in my arms. When I gaze down at the viewfinder I feel like Vivian Meyer, seeing the world through and grainy and timeless filter. When I press the shutter button I feel like I am creating something really special.
Here are a few of my favorite snaps from Zander and I’s afternoon exploring the Getty Museum. Protip: If you are local or visiting LA I can’t recommend enough going midweek. Crowds were low and you can waltz about at your own pace without feeling anxious or rushed to see it all.
