I know I’ve written before how I find it difficult to find creative inspiration for my photography here in LA. I think it’s because there isn’t that sense of history I love and adore – everything (and everybody) is constantly in a state of reinvention. (And I can say this as a native who has also lived elsewhere.) One of my favorite areas though is a neighborhood that is constantly reinventing itself – in a wonderfully creative way. I recently took my camera down to the ‘arts district’ of downtown and started to explore a total treasure trove of artistic expression between street art, murals and works in progress. I feel like every time I come down here there’s something new to see and photograph. Shot with my Nikon F100, Velvia 50.
