so la

December 27, 2010

I was going to post about a bunch of other things, but I’m in LA for the week and the sun is shining. I’m wearing sunglasses and short sleeve shirts.┬áRU and I flew in on Xmas eve, ┬áspent Xmas day with two good friends and spent yesterday driving around – Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Mulholland Drive. So far we’ve been to the beach, the farmer’s market, had some awesome Chinese, Korean and Ethiopian food, and reserved seats at the Arclight and saw True Grit. It’s such an American city in that classic sense – immigration, hustle and invention.

Last Saturday RU and I walked from our house to downtown and then up and over to northwest, which is a pretty good distance, at least the route we took. I bet it was over 6 miles. We checked out a few art shows that were still pulling in folks on their last weekend. We took the bus home. Waiting at the stop I tried to get shots or RU jumping and I think this is her in mid-air.

Last week when it was too cold for me to ride my bike, I took the bus to work and walked home. Dusk comes pretty early up here just a little north of the 45th parallel. The sky was turning from day to night as I made my way over the Hawthorne bridge. It was clear so out; I couldn’t take my eyes off all those shades of blue. It was probably around 4:30 when I shot this. By the time I got to the other side it was pretty much dark.

Lately, I’ve been shooting most of my photos with my camera phone. I love the constraint. No fuss. No muss. Just shoot. Either it turns out or it doesn’t.
