|The Los Angeles Theatre in Downtown LA|
You may or not know this about me, but i LOVE photography. You also may or may not know that until recently, i lived in an old loft (originally built in 1898) in Downtown Los Angeles for over 8 years, before it was the "cool" place to be. I'm not necessarily technically as skilled as i would like to be in terms of camera settings, but i make up for it in oodles of passion. whether it's my Nikon digital SLR camera or my iPhone, when inspiration strikes, i take a shot - literally.
one of my favorite things to take photos of is Los Angeles - my city of Angels. And my two favorite times to take pics of Los Angeles? One: the morning after it rains, early, before anyone else is up. The air is clear and crisp, there's a fresh smell in the air, and the light is somehow different. My second favorite time is at dusk, usually after rain (which is rare) or when there have been great, big, billowy clouds in the sky. it makes for the most beautiful sunsets streaked with pinks and purples.
I've long wanted to do a show of my favorite series of Los Angeles photos, but i have yet to get my rear into gear in order to achieve that. so instead, i'm going to post a few of my favorite Los Angeles photos to re-inspire me to do something with them. even if, for now, this is all i do. let me know your thoughts in the comments or tweet me @GeekGirlKnows!
Stay tuned for some exciting news this week that is about a blast from the past...those of you who have been around this blog for a while are going to be pretttttty excited, i think. :)
