July 4th weekend

July 6, 2011 § Leave a comment

Last weekend was a perfect weekend. Hung out with my love, ate lots of good food, spent some time with family, caught a ball game, watched fireworks, and learned about animals and science! It was too good, which makes this week back at work super hard. We spent our time between Oakland and San Francisco as Drew’s Aunt Karen let us stay at her house for the weekend (Thanks, Karen!) Aunt Nancy took us to an A’s game, which also had fireworks! We got ice cream twice! at Humphry Slocombe because the secret breakfast was just too darn good! Went back to our favorite sushi place, Tataki. And spent all day at the super fun California academy of sciences. Had the most quintessential July 4th ever with a parade and BBQ.  Seriously, I think we might have to move up here after we graduate.

Griffith Observatory on film

A few months ago, I got a toy film camera. I put some iso400 film in it and just got it developed this week. I love the color saturation of film. Here are some shots of our LA trip to the observatory. Check back soon for pics from portland.

fun in the sun

The weather in Irvine has been crazy the last few days.  It’s hotter than it was during most days last summer!  In honor of our “summer in january” I’m sharing these photos from when it really was summer.  I had read about the whole paddle boarding craze in the news and wanted to try it out so Drew and I went with Todd and Ruth to Newport Harbor where we rented a few huge ass boards and have an afternoon of fun.  I loved it and can’t wait to do it again next summer!

Since I still had a few shots left on the camera after our adventure, I took along with us when we went to the beach.  When I look at the pictures, they are just so quintessentially Southern California :)crystal covecrystal covecrystal cove

A note about the photos:  I took these pictures with a waterproof disposable camera (I wanted photos from our adventure but obviously didn’t want to risk my DSLR).  Didn’t they turn out great?  I love the vintagey kind of look.  I had these developed by the people at Richard Photo Lab.  They do a lot of professional stuff, but they’re also willing to work with random people with an interest in photography.  They’re not cheap, but the quality is good.  I only brightened the photos a bit in lightroom, otherwise they’re unchanged.
