  1. How are you photos always so pretty and great quality? I love it how you bring out all the colours in all of your photos (since the very beginning, may I add)! Mind sharing what camera you are using? 🙂

  2. Beautiful Beautiful Images. I feel like I just went on a trip to LA. Will have to visit one of these days.

    What a colourful city Los Angeles is, I love the mosaics on the steps, they must be inspired by Mexico? Thanks for the virtual trip. Gustavo Woltmann

  4. Hello! Loved your shots – wanted to ask you where some of the solid color walls (green & yellow) were, along with the Spanish tile and the brick wall with multiple shades of blue. Thanks so much!
