Downtown LA

I stayed with a good friend of mine who lives in downtown LA in my final weeks on the west coast. The skyline was amazing! I got so used to seeing the beach almost every day living in Venice that it was a welcome, however different, view. (Although I choose beach over buildings any day.) These are mostly taken at different times of the day from my friends couch in his loft.

San Fraaaaancisco

I went to San Francisco. We were touristy and it was fun.

People in San Francisco like to feed pigeons (but not touch them because it’s a felony)

See that green speck in the center there? That’s the crookedest street in the world. Can’t you tell?

SanFran_010

See that yellow house there? That’s the house from Full House. And in the background, there’s more buildings!

This is Amoeba. It’s in Berkely and has a couple other locations.

I like San Francisco!

Rock Climbing

I took a rock climbing lesson through Treks and Tracks, a company a would very highly recommend to anyone in the LA area. Paul and Chris, my guides, were extremely knowledgeable and helpful on my first real climbs. I went back the next day to take some photos of the next class. Paul rigged me up at the top of the cliff thing and I got my first taste of shooting from the top. It was a rush (read: terrifying) to experience the day after my first climbing class.

barefoot run cross country

Rae Heim is 18. A couple weeks ago she finished a run across the country which she started in April. She finished in Manhattan Beach after running over 3,500 miles.

Oh ya, and she was barefoot. Rae did the run for Soles 4 Soles. You can view her donation page here.

Videos I Love.

These are some great, and very very beautiful, pieces I want to share. I had zero to do with their creation.

One of my infallible favorites

They are all highly stylized but I definitely feel like the aesthetics lend themselves to the magic of each story. There is definitely a time and a place for it.
