I really want to improve my photography, so I took my film SLR for some scenic shots of Marina del Rey. Along the way, I persuaded my friend to bring their lovely Nikon D90 so I could play with it. I’m really craving a DSLR, but I haven’t saved up enough funds just yet. Unless I stop shopping the next couple of months, I’ll never reach my goal!
But anyways, I love stopping by Marina del Rey and watch the boats float by. It’s a very quiet and calm area of Los Angeles that really keeps to itself. From beaches, small trails, and boardwalks, I feel that this place is more of a local hangout than a tourist attraction, which is nice when you’re trying to avoid the crowds.

Here are some of my shot with the DLSR:
Later that afternoon, we stopped by a Chinese restaurant for a bite to eat. It was tucked amongst a random slew of buildings and considering the current economic climate, a restaurant needs to be decent to survive, right? Well, I was wrong. It was way too over-seasoned for my palate and though I ended up taking half of the meal home, I had to modify the entrees to make it less…intense.
Disappointment isn’t easy to hide.
