Take a Photo Walk

Do It

Walk your neighborhood and photograph something new. Maybe a stained glass window you never noticed, or a plant that's bloomed since the last time you walked?

    I've been seeking out public art in my neighborhood in my latest photo walks. I've found these three pieces recently -- the "time to write fiction" piece is actually post-it sized and taped to a signpost, and the other two are larger pieces. I really love the idea of using street art to make people think + create. It seems to be a very Los Angeles thing. There's also a "Where the sidewalk ends/Where the sidewalk starts" piece in my neighborhood, and I frequently see street art making witty comments about LA stereotypes--the "Kale Yourself" tag on Beverly got some local press.

    Some nocturnal photo walking :)

    I have such mixed feelings about the beautiful Mulholland fountain. It's gorgeous and the benches around it provide much needed relatively sheltered sleeping space for homeless neighbors, but I wouldn't want to be remembered by wasting water in a drought... Maybe they could turn it off at least during the hottest part of the day to reduce evaporation?

    Some images from my holiday weekend photo walks! I loved the combination of natural beauty and the man-made flag, and I thought the discarded monitor outside a multimillion dollar home made for a poignant contrast.

    I went for a run this morning through my neighborhood and decided that this was a perfect chance to share my photo walk story! I am usually not much of a runner, but my marathon-running cousin convinced me to go with her. I'm glad she did because I feel great! In addition to getting outside on a beautiful day, we also ended up trying a new coffee shop, and stopping at a yard sale on our way home where I picked up some awesome crates. I'm not sure what I'm going to use them for yet, but I'm super excited!

    My friends always make fun of me when I ask them if they'd like to go on a "short walk" because they all know short to me, means miles to the rest of the world. But I always tell them that more often than not, it's always worth it. Here's what we found the other day at Grand Park in Downtown LA.

    Took a walk through the wetlands in Playa del Rey. There used to be a trolley that would take folks from Culver City to the beaches of Playa del Rey. You can see where the tracks used to be below.

    I like heading out to Huntington Gardens in Pasadena and taking a look at all the flowers growing out there. There's so much silence there. It's meditative.

    I walked most recently in Griffith Park. It seems like I find something new and beautiful to photograph every time! I love living so close to one of LA's natural wonders.
