The Getty Center is one of the famous art museums in Los Angeles. You’ll find it perched on top of the hill. The view from the top is spectacular during daytime and especially at night. If you’re visiting Los Angeles, this museum should be on your list. The architecture is quite modern with open spaces and a well-maintained garden.
Did I also mention that admission is free? You do have to pay for parking which is $15 but totally worth it. They have an extensive array of artworks. The list of current exhibitions can be found on their website and are quite impressive. I recommend 2 full days to appreciate everything the museum has to offer.
I’ve been to The Getty Center quite a few times and the last time I went I came prepared with a 35mm film SLR camera. If I could afford it, I’d probably be sticking to film for life. Unfortunately, digital is the more affordable and convenient option.
Below are the pictures that were taken with the vintage Minolta X-700.
I love taking pictures but I’m definitely not an expert. However, if you feel a little bit nostalgic and want to take out your old film camera that’s lying somewhere in your closet and have some fun with it like I did. Go for it!
I bought mine (2nd hand) a long time ago. The Minolta X-700 is the last manual focus camera they released more than 20 years ago and still has rave reviews. If you’re interested in the camera and the black and white film I used please check out the links below.
