I rarely get in more than one WWW post while traveling but with all of the amazing photo ops LA has to offer, how could I resist? (plus, having a photog friend who lives there doesn’t hurt the situation) So I’m throwing it back this Thursday to last week…when I was in shorts and just not giving a damn.
I’ve had a very interesting relationship with LA over the last ten or so years — it used to be my favorite place in the world, but when I got a little older (and traveled to more places) I started to think about it much differently. After a trip last week, though, I’m starting to see the City of Angels (and Palm Tree Instagrams) in a whole new light…and not just because the lighting is always really good.
From sunny 70s everyday and now back to good old Chicago winters, LA was real. Of course these photos were taken the one day it rained when I was there (and maybe one of five days it rains all year) but it fit that whole black / white / grey motif my outfit was going for anyway…and happened to match this fantastic street art. So here’s a day in DTLA (or Downtown LA, if you’re not familiar).
If you’ve ever been to Miami, you know it’s a city of a lot of things — European and Latin influence, a big art scene (hello Art Basel!), The Webster…and rhinestone jean pockets. This is something I just figured out for myself after traveling there for the first time this last week. So now that we have this new travel section here on CCF, let’s welcome ourselves to Miami (although as of last night, it’s more like “welcome to the movie Frozen“).
What happens when your street art loving self encounters 1.3 kilometers (or just under a mile, in American speak) of street art goodness? THIS!
