Driving back to California from Utah not too long ago, the holiday traffic through Las Vegas was horrendous. We ended up cutting through the Mojave National Preserve to Joshua Tree which made me extremely happy. Desolate and exquisitely beautiful with just enough decay and dilapidation to keep me interested, our little detour ended up being one of the highlights of the trip. Pictured here: an abandoned train car that caught my eye as we were passing through.
One last Polaroid from my Sunday morning in Venice Beach. Photo taken with an SX-70 and film from the Impossible Project.

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!
