Unexpected graffiti findings while cruising down the streets of Los Angeles - you never know what you'll run into.
I feel so blessed to be living in a city full of graffiti art, and one of my favorite things to do on a warm, sunny day in LA is to go hunt for them – especially the ones hiding in a back alley that I’ve never seen before – so that’s what I did!
As I was cruising down Spring Street, past the Los Angeles Historic State Park, the area started to become deserted so I decided to turn around. Just as I was about to bust a U, I was suddenly surrounded by a bunch of amazing graffiti art that was so colorful that I had to park my car and snap away.
It’s so exciting to discover art where you least expect it. I can’t wait to go on another hunt for graffiti – any suggestions on where to go?

What's so great about analog photography? You never know what you will get in the end. Not every film let all of my photos look perfect, some fail, too. Maybe some of you experienced the same. After trying out several film soups and chemicals I finally discovered the easiest and quickest way: chlorine!
