"I feel like I have stepped back in time whenever I visit the ‘Boardwalk’ in Santa Cruz, California to take photos. It was originally constructed in 1865 and so many of the rides have retained a vintage quality to them.

There is an exuberance to the city that is palpable – from happy dogs playing on the beach, to surfers, to family outings at the ‘Boardwalk,’ to young children squealing in the ocean’s surf. I loved how the combo Mabel Lens, Pistil Film with RedEye Gel accentuated the 1950’s hipster California look.

In this photo, the addition of the RedEye flash created a warm festive glow bringing out the vibrancy of the carousel’s colors in a muted way – reminiscent of the 1950s Californian hipster culture."
