This weekend was the Great Los Angeles Air Raid in San Pedro, CA. This event happens every year to commemorate a strange event that happened in 1942. Was it weather balloons? Enemy aircraft? UFOs?
Whatever it was, there was a lot of gunfire happening from Fort MacArthur that night in the direction of the ocean.
My friend and I. We both made our skirts and blouses. The vest I wore was owned by a real life Rosie the Riveter who worked on Goodyear blimps during the war.
My new-to-me vintage bracelet. I love this thing so much!
And a few of my favorite shots from the event:
Unfortunately, I’m still getting used to my new camera, so a lot of my photos didn’t turn out. The focus sounds the same as the shutter! But now I know for next time :)
