Here you can find work in progress, Holga photos, travel photos, snaps from around town and, occasionally, ones from the file boxes that have never found a spot to call home. The nice thing about a blog is that I can show you new work in a less formal fashion than on my web page. I post on a regular basis, so check back. You can follow me on Instagram @ jonnycakes7
Moody, Del Monte Beach, Monterey, CA.
Two palms and a lifeguard tower.
Paddling across the Monterey Bay? Yes! Twenty, paddle powered, outrigger canoes did it yesterday in the Monterey Bay Crossing. Here’s Alice and an Outrigger Santa Cruz crew leaving the Santa Cruz Harbor.
Five hours and twenty-two nautical miles later at Del Monte Beach, Monterey
Here’s another look at early morning, Doheny State Beach. Not the usual bustling SoCal scene.
The mighty San Lorenzo River just can’t get out to the bay these days. On calm evenings the reflections can be extra special!
When I visit Dad, I like to get up early and walk down to the beach. It never really feels like Orange County to me. There’s a funkiness and some rough edges. It gives me hope!
I’m currently working on a series of hand colored, silver prints from travels in Spain, Portugal and Morocco. All the photographs were made with plastic Holga cameras. The film was hand developed, prints were made in a darkroom, toned and hand colored. This one is from Plaza de Santa Ana, Madrid, Spain. One of my favorite plazas in Madrid!
On the busy westside of Los Angeles, tucked behind the Century Plaza towers, near the Annenberg Space for Photography is a small park. It’s a quiet, peaceful oasis in the midst of Century City. Everytime I visit the Annenberg Space I spend a little time in the park.
Holga NYC, Manhattan, looking across the Hudson River toward New Jersey. Made with a plastic camera and black and white film.
Post rain, morning walk, Doheny State Beach.
Another from a little later on the same morning.
