On Saturday we went walk about in the City of Angels.
Starting with the early morning ( not quite sunrise because I was slacking) at Will Rodgers State Beach in
Malibu. Yes that's right friendlies, we hauled our asses from South Orange County to Malibu on a Saturday morning. Why? when there are dozens of incredible beaches within 20 minutes of our home turf would be go all they way up to 'bu ? Good question.
|Sun Up over Santa Monica|
|watch out for the Rocks|
|I recognize those shadows|
After the Beach, I forced poor CD (who had not had coffee or breakfast) to come to the Lake Shrine with me. He is as patient as they come. Letting me take pictures of the silly flowers. The Lake Shrine is a peaceful beautiful place. It does my heart good to hear the quiet rush of the water in the lake.
|Fancy pink lilies|
|I think this is a california poppy|
|grape vines on a cottage|
|cool old bell|
After a break for a burger and a couple of well earned beers. (Flat tire for CD, Anchor Steam for me) We went into the Arts district, in search of texture.
Here is some of what we found:
|the bridge from zombieland|
|Ominous clouds over the LA river|
|LA, with a dipped in Piss treatment for CD|
|Sweet Street art|
|cheerful isn't it|
|santa was represented|
|Cool old car in front of the street art|
|Id like to live in this building|
|a piece by Shepherd Fairey|
|even the dumpster is cool|
What did I learn ? I learned that LOST Angeles is a city with many different faces. I learned not to walk on the train tracks in LA. (ask the sheriff that gave us hell!)
I learned that there that there is always something to take a photos of, if you look. I learned that CD does in fact day dream.
With love and peace,
