Modern-day hippie enclave that it is, the Venice Beach boardwalk has more smoke shops and medical-marijuana dispensaries than I’ve ever seen in one relatively-small place. :-)

Since we’re back in the city anyway, I thought I’d post a few more film images from my recent stay in Los Angeles.

Today’s photo is a Polaroid SX-70 shot I took early on a Sunday morning in Venice Beach. Given the fact that street photography makes me extremely uncomfortable, I’m not quite sure why, on the rare occasion that I do try my hand at it, I usually do so with a less-than-discreet camera. Because there’s nothing like the distinctive whirr of a Polaroid for attracting attention!

Since I’m into my iPhone camera roll now anyway, I thought I’d share a few snapshots I took recently while in the city. Pictured here is a fence that caught my eye late one afternoon as I was walking in Pasadena.

Not too far from the Salton Sea is Brawley, a small city in the desert I’ve had the pleasure of spending some time in recently. Pictured here is an iPhone snap of a boarded-up window I spotted there that, given its lovely shapes, lines, angles, curves, and textures, strikes me now as a sort of found collage.

The thing about a daily-photo project is that you sometimes have to plug away at it even when you know there’s nobody paying attention. And with that, back to Iowa we go.

Have a great evening, folks. I hope your team wins!
