L.A. L.A., City of Dreams

THIS is why Los Angeles is a great city.  When ignorance leads to complaints of the dirt and the humans that inhabit the city, I can help but shake my head at them and say, “You really have NO idea what Los Angeles is about.”

Yes, there’s traffic.  But when a slow shutter speed camera captures the long light trails of light weaving through the city, it makes me think that there’s a silver lining to the cloud.  Yes, there’s smog, but Los Angeles gets plenty clear days and unforgettable sunsets (and sunrises).  You just have to know where to look.  Believe me, there’s architecture.  Billions of self-made dollars acquired by just damn good talent built up this spread out city with the largest urban park in America, it’s own observatory, mod mansions, open-floor-plan museums, high-vaulted ceiling eateries in 19th century buildings, outdoor music venues and a downtown that may not look so pleasant from the inside, but sure as hell looks good from the outside.  And then lastly, the people.  Or should I say, the TALENT.  Just like every city, L.A. has its bad apples, but it’s dripping with talent.  Musicians, artists, cinematographers, writers, producers, actors (I mean, real actors)…they all exist here too.

One fine cinematographer captured all that I love about Los Angeles.  The creator is, in himself, the reason why I love Los Angeles– #talent

I’m content staying here just awhile longer.
