    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? πŸ™‚

    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

    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!

    I am a San Diego transplant living in LA and I always LOVE seeing my city through the eyes of a visitor! I feel so lucky to be living here and I always try to be mindful of what a beautiful and interesting place my home is.
