Santa Monica Pier on Film

I took three shots on film of the Santa Monica Pier when I was taking the photo workshop with Sam Abell.

There are a lot of things to like about the film shot compared to the similar digital views (see one below).

Mostly I think the attraction comes from mood created by the black and white, the silhouette, and the grain
