California Love – Part III
I’m a sucker for fun fairs so I was excited when we arrived at the boardwalk in Santa Cruz and discovered the whole thing was covered in thrill rides, side-stall games and food booths offering the usual hots dogs and cotton candy, and the unusual (at least for me) deep fried twinkies and funnel cake. I was particularly excited because we went to Coney Island while in I was in New York but my NY film came out blank, so it was another opportunity to shoot carnival photos.
That night we stayed at the Point Montara light house hostel, which is about 30 minutes south of San Francisco. We got there early so we’d have enough time to check in, head to San Fran for dinner and be back in time for the 10pm curfew, but we got so distracted taking photos of the incredible setting and buildings that we ended up eating at a local dinner instead.
Did I mention the hostel had a private beach where we watched the most beautiful sun set?
I’ve been back for over a week and my last three rolls of film haven’t been developed yet. I drop them off at the developers on tuesday, he told me it would be ready thursday, I went to collect it but it wasn’t ready. “Tomorrow”, he said. I went back and it still wasn’t ready. “I’m sick, it should be ready on monday”. But of course it’s a holiday today, so hopefully tomorrow I’ll get my San Francisco and Red Wood photos. But, until then i’ll leave you with the only photo that turned out from my Golden Gate Bridge photos.
