The best kind of weekends, Sundays in particular, are spent in the quiet suburbs of Pasadena. Honestly as I get older, I find myself visiting places that are chill and quiet, filled with nature and blue skies. Maybe I am just an old lady in a Millennial’s body, who knows. Even when I was in my early twenties, I never liked to go out to bars and drink for fun or to super packed and noisy places. Most people like to spend their weekends hanging out in large groups but I prefer to hang out with a friend or two (maximum) or indulge in my own hobbies and creative pursuits.
Also maybe that’s why during the quarantine I have been doing alright! Although I do miss catching up some friends at a cafe or restaurant. Hopefully we can all resume that soon!
Crystal Cove State Park is truly a beautiful place to visit during the golden hour. It is located in Newport Beach (Orange County). The story behind this is I spent a whole Saturday driving in the direction of LAX, past Hermosa Beach, towards Manhattan Beach, through the costal towns by the 1. Just because, well sometimes I just want to get in my car and drive without a destination in mind. It must have taken about 3 hours, all the while discussing with my sister the political and social movements that are currently happening in the United States. Needless to say, it was an intense and in-depth conversation…and drive.
Well, by the time we arrived at Crystal Cove, it was golden hour.
Also it is my first (and last time) shooting Kodak Gold 200. Personally I am not a fan of how unnaturally warm the colors are. Maybe it works this time around for the golden hour, but I still prefer Fujicolor films.
