I spent three days in Los Angeles, visiting friends. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Los_Angeles)
Since I am not much of a city person, I was apprehensive about going to LA. It’s such a massive city and it has a reputation for being dangerous. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
I stayed in a residential area south of Hollywood. The area was comfortable. Street parking was very safe and convenient.
My friends took me to a Farmer’s Market in the Larchmont Village area. (I love Farmer’s Markets. I balloon twist at the Milwaukie Farmer’s Market in the Portland metropolitan area. So I felt right at home at this one.)
I spent one day photographing and interviewing two people for my newest project under development – a photographic documentary of people with great smiles. The sessions went well.
One afternoon, I decided to play tourist and went to Hollywood. It was beginning to get dark, but I was able to get some photographs.
