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.Sometimes 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.
