Reader photos: Best of Southern California moments for April

One of the things that’s striking as Southern California Moments has grown is the amount of film photography we’ve been receiving, which is thoroughly represented in this month’s favorites. Our selects from April include pictures taken with a Mamiya 7, a Vivitar Wide & Slim and cross-processed negative film. While there are numerous smartphone apps and image processing plug-ins that mimic the look and feel of analog combinations, it’s refreshing to see that photographers are proving that film is not dead.

Every day of 2011, we’re featuring reader-submitted photos of Southern California Moments. Follow us on Twitter and visit the Southern California Moments homepage for more on this series. Contribute images here or through the L.A. Times Community Pool on Flickr.
