Red Rock Canyon, Topanga 2003
I had driven down to Santa Monica to spend Halloween with Ryan and wound up staying for the entire weekend. On Sunday after his friend left and after a little football, we went out to get some fresh air and went hiking through Red Rock Canyon off of Topanga Canyon Road. This was a state park in Malibu and was one of my first times hiking in this area. I didn't realize there were so many little parks tucked away in Malibu, and some of them are definitely spots one should visit.
These pictures were taken with my Minolta system. I used Ilford FP4 Plus film, the first time I've used it. I think I like it better then Tri X, but not as much as Plus X. Lenses with me were sparse due to a hangover, a lack of energy, and lack of a belt: 58/1.2, 35 Shift, and 21/2.8. I wound up experimenting with the VFC features on the Shift lens a lot as well as seeing how various filters would affect B&W (e.g. yellow filters with the sky).
