What do you do when you wake up randomly at 2:00 a.m. ?
I decided I wanted to take a trip to California and visit Los Angeles so I got on the phone and called up a friend to see if he wanted to go along with.
I haven’t had to opportunity to visit Los Angeles in the past so I made it a trip to focus on being a tourist and not a photographer.
First stop on the list was Santa Monica, The pier was something both my friend and I wanted to see. Unfortunately we arrived around 10:00 a.m. Monday morning and there wasn’t much going on.
After walking the pier and up and down the Pacific Coast it was about time to get Lunch. There were several tempting locations to eat at but we decided on Holy Cow Barbeque. Delicious.
Where was the next stop?
After we visited Santa Monica it was off to Hollywood to walk the boulevard and check out the sights.
I wanted to see find some of the celebrity stars and see which ones still existed. Unfortunately some that I wanted to see have been removed due to vandals.
I did find several that I wanted to see and was able to capture them on my phone to keep for my personal memories.
How could I not get a picture of The Beatles star, one of my favorite musical groups.
After about an hour of walking up and down Hollywood Boulevard it was time to head out and check out what else the city had to offer.
I found several places that I want to return to later for photo sessions and I hope to do so later this year.
