Our latest feature is a San Diego travel story by Meredith Green. Captured on 35mm film, Meredith brought to life the beautiful landscapes of the California coast. Here is more from Meredith about her time in San Diego…
The cool thing about San Diego is each area is unique with different views. Ocean Beach was laid back, and it was fun to just sit on the beach and watch the surfers do their thing. The images here were shot on a disposable Kodak FunSaver which suited the vibe.
Everything else was shot on a Canon Rebel GII 35mm camera with Kodak Gold.
LaJolla’s beaches had more rocks and cliffs to explore. The tide coming in that evening was strong and the views were breathtaking. My favorite image is the first image shared below because that tiny speck in the sky is an airplane. The airport is situated right in the middle of the city, so we could see planes landing and taking off from most places during the trip. I was happy to capture this little memory.
Torrey Pines offered dramatic views while hiking, even on overcast days. I appreciate the ragged edges of the cliffs meeting with the smooth flow of the sand and ocean.
Coronado is classic. I was bummed that I had one photo left on my roll by the time we arrived at the island but was happy with the outcome of this view of Hotel Del. I generously (wink wink) offered to place a dinner order from a restaurant at the hotel and go pick it up while my family played on the beach nearby, so I could capture this shot.
