I have lived in Los Angeles for the past several years. When I first moved here I marveled at everything around me. Not because I was raised in some small town, I wasn’t (not that there is anything wrong with that!). But, because being here was something new. After all, everything new seems to have this shiny tinge that makes it both inspiring and exciting.
Over the years I quit looking around me. I complain about the traffic, the roads, the pollution… I could go on. And while all these things were true and are true, there is more to Los Angeles.
So, when I walked out onto the deck at LACMA the other day, I took this quick photo of the view. I didn’t think much of it at the time. I have seen the Los Angeles skyline countless time. The Hollywood sign? That’s for tourists. But I took it anyways.
It wasn’t until I got home and loaded it onto my computer that I had to smile. I realized, just because something is the status quo doesn’t make it any less special.
I realized there is a lot about LA that inspires me—
The Old-Hollywood History…
The 1920s Architecture…
(I could probably go on…)
Guess I just need to do a better job of paying attention!
