Why There’s Truly No Place Like Home: A Day In DTLA

Why There's Truly No Place Like Home: A Day In DTLA - I'm Taking Off - Travel Blog

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. With camera in tow I reminded myself why there’s truly is no place like home.Why There's Truly No Place Like Home: A Day In DTLA - I'm Taking Off - Travel BlogWhy There's Truly No Place Like Home: A Day In DTLA - I'm Taking Off - Travel BlogWhy There's Truly No Place Like Home: A Day In DTLA - I'm Taking Off - Travel BlogWhy There's Truly No Place Like Home: A Day In DTLA - I'm Taking Off - Travel BlogWhy There's Truly No Place Like Home: A Day In DTLA - I'm Taking Off - Travel BlogWhy There's Truly No Place Like Home: A Day In DTLA - I'm Taking Off - Travel BlogWhy There's Truly No Place Like Home: A Day In DTLA - I'm Taking Off - Travel BlogSometimes I take living in Los Angeles for granted. I don’t acknowledge the amazing feats of architecture lining the sky. 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.

    Yes. I love it here! It’s easy to forget how awesome this place really is. I have to remind myself that people come here to vacation and I’m blessed enough to live here. Gotta take it in! #BLMgirl

      Hi Camesha! It truly IS a blessing to call LA home, especially in the winter when other states are being clammed with snow!
