I had a lovely 4-day adventure around Los Angeles - with stops in Hollywood, Santa Monica and Venice. here are the galleries with some of my (iphone) photos. <3

street shots around LA:

i solo-adventured around santa monica in the early morning, when most of the town was still asleep. the pier was nearly deserted, except for a couple other travelers and out-of-towners like myself.

here are some personal faves:

Los Angeles was a crazy place. It's huge, and as someone used to the centrality of cities on the East Coast, it's so confusing to realize there really is no exact city center to it. Downtown LA is a place, but then Venice, Hollywood, etc. - is all part of Los Angeles too?

venice was exploding with colors and flowers - it's a place I would love to go back to, over and over:

and that is all! I hope to visit again soon! :)
