No. 3 VENICE BEACH

As I mentioned in my last post, I recently returned from a week long road-trip through California.

I live in New York, so I flew to San Francisco, spent a night there, then drove down Route 1 (PCH) all the way to LA

I came back to New York with 419 shots.

Without a doubt some of my favorites were taken at Venice Beach

I have loved Skateboarding ever since I played Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 on my GBA

Venice Beach is such a legendary skate spot that I was lucky to find it so empty. This was around 11am on a weekday. I love Portra 400 because I can shoot at 1/1000 and f8 and not have to worry about focus, even though its fun trying to keep up with the action. 

I could have honestly spent days here shooting these guys. But I only had a week in the West Coast and there was plenty more to see


I have a lot more to post from this trip but my next one is going to be about NYC and the roll I shot after coming back

What is you're favorite sport/activity to shoot?

let me know in the comments

talk to you soon,
