When I was a little girl, my parent’s bank was in Downtown Los Angeles, so frequently I got to accompany them when they went. I remember being enamored with the tall buildings surrounding me and all these years later I still get this familiar feeling. I don’t know if it’s the buildings themselves or the memories they evoke, all the same it’s a feeling I welcome especially when the opportunity to roam around DTLA for leisure is rare. There really is no other place in America like Los Angeles. It’s no wonder so many people move here each year into beautiful apartments like those offered by https://www.lineala.com/, whether that be for the opportunities that LA brings, or just to experience the same infatuation I have with this place. With camera in tow I reminded myself why there’s truly is no place like home.Sometimes I take living in Los Angeles for granted. I don’t acknowledge the amazing feats of architecture lining the sky. I don’t think I take as much time as I should to pay attention to the truly beautiful apartments, condos, and even mansions that you can find here in the area. And that is a point that I wish to change because my friend is thinking about moving here on a permanent basis soon and has contacted real estate agents, similar to those at Eighth & Grand to help her find the perfect property and I’m really excited for her. This is the best city in the world, even though I know that sometimes I don’t appreciate it as much as I should. I complain about the heat rather than basking in the sun’s generous rays. I complain about the traffic rather than rolling my windows down, turning my music up, and realizing I’m in a rush to go nowhere. I can’t say I’ll never do these things again but these images will serve as a reminder of the city I’m fortunate enough to call home.
