So beautiful! LA is the best. Take it from a LA native who moved to the south and regrets it everyday. I even miss the 405 traffic that this point. I miss it so much, there is nothing like it. In my mind I take trips to the beach or imagine I just went to Redondo Beach for the day, went to an art museum, or just met cool people in line at Pinks. Then I wake up and realize I'm live in the "dirty" south.

What park was that where you were able to catch a good glimpse of the west LA skyline as well as downtown LA? Was that Signal Hill?

Default How I spent my lunch break

Rode my bike a couple miles down to Manhattan Beach at lunch. Snapped a few photos with my cell phone. Sent them to my buddies in CO and AL where it's snowing.

So how come you haven't hit the "tourist" spots in downtown like Olvera St, Chinatown and Little Tokyo? I'm sure there's lots of great pictures to be taken there as well.

Not to mention that you were in the area but you didn't take any pics of the water court or the artist district. You also went to Griffith observatory but didn't take pics of the carousel at Griffith Park or the old L.A. zoo or travel town (I love trains). Man, I could go on with so many spots to take good pics and to just go and hang out in. I think I love living here almost as much as I love my wife.

Those pic's bring back some great memories. I lived there from 64 to 96 then moved to Boise. Not disgruntled, just needed some fresh air and open spaces. LA was a great place to grow up back then. I do miss the Pacific and especially the sailing and surfing.

Really great- thanks for that. I especially loved the ArtWalk shots. What a great scene downtown.
