    You have lots of opportunities for some great shots right nearby. Enjoy it and then pick up more film at Freestyle, and have some more fun!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I prefer Samy's. I ordered stuff from FreeStyle and I never got them.
    Twice. >.>

    I'm not that familiar with the LA area, I mean I can get around, but when it comes to "YOUNEEDTOGOHEREANDTAKEPICTURES" I'm lost.

    I know Mulholland has gorgeous views from the Hills. That's about it.

    I do drive.
    In the state of Florida.

    Only visiting the lovely state of California, sadly.

    One doesn't need to go to a bar (but it can be fun). That is a good opportunity to use really fast film. But I understand your Auntie, etc etc.

    Buy slower film and walk the streets of Hollywood. The 3200 will constrain you too much. There is lots to shoot. Lots and lots. Interesting people, buildings, and other assorted sights. Hollywood Blvd, Sunset Blvd, Sunset Strip, Melrose Blved, Fairfax Blvd (except on Saturday when the residents are in Temple and the streets are vacant). Hang out at the regular "tourist sites" like the Kodak Center, Grauman's Chinese, and Disney's ___ Theater across the street. Have an ice cream at the Disney Ice Cream shop!

    If you can, do the same downtown. Olvera St, Union Station, Chinatown... or the Grand Central Market.

    Whatever you do, have fun. There is a lot of fun to be had in LA, Hollywood and the environs. I hope the weather is good for your visit!

    Hop a bus and go downtown to the Walt Disney Concert Hall by Frank O. Gehry. You can use the 3200 film inside.

    When Downtown LA, you can have a great sandwich at Phillipe's. It's been around since 1908.

    California has four seasons: Drought, Fire, Flood and Earthquake.We enjoy all of them, but usually don't get this much rain in a week. I thought they would have to play the Poinsettia Bowl in five feet of water, but they did manage to get a few million gallons of water pumped out in time to play a football game on Thursday night.

    No, the seasons in southern California are:
    Ski Season
    Conditioning for Ski Season
    Both are good for bicycle riding. A cold snap is when the temperature does not get above 72ºF by 10 AM, then you have to suffer with wearing a sweater for part of the day!

    There's a Frank Lloyd Wright house walking distance from where you'll be...
