Los Angeles Walks (and Rides)

Since coming back from New York, I’ve been on a mission to walk everywhere after doing exactly that on vacation. Coming back 5 lbs. lighter with the hipbones of a 16-year-old model was a convincing enough argument to do so. 10/10/10′s cicLAvia brought on a pedestrian- and bike-friendly 7th Street for a day, and more...
Downtown Discovery: Goats on Angel's Knoll

Downtown Discovery: Goats on Angel’s Knoll

Was super excited to hear that the goats were coming back to munch on the weeds at Angel’s Knoll. I caught them on the tail-end – har har – of their work week here: these pictures were shot after they were moved to the area right below Angel’s Flight. And some Blackberry snaps on Angel’s...
Day Trippin': Joshua Tree

Day Trippin’: Joshua Tree

A trip fail to the snooze fest of a city called San Diego was remedied with an impromptu late night drive out to the desert last Saturday. It was midnight, and pivotal life-altering plans were just made at Urth Caffe minutes earlier. While we’re on the subject on doing things we’ve only dreamed of doing,...

Color Scheming: Junker Gardens

My weekend was a quiet, quaint suburban affair, thanks for asking. Prior to making it out to the SGV, we stumbled upon the Amgen Tour Festival going on near LA Live, where I snapped this photo.

Gifts for the mothers and the newly confirmed niece. My thumb may be blacker than a moonless night sky, but I can sure whip up a succulent garden in less than half an hour. (And true to form, there is a heart-shaped Argyroderma in there.) Ro Succs – that’s not inappropriate at all right?

So sums up my current state of mind. I’ll be up in the Bay Area this weekend to try to clear my head. You should head up on PCH and hit the beach – it’s nice outside. Just watch the traffic. Malibu, CA

My 4th of July weekend in pictures: Eating, eating, and more eating – Ensenada-style fish tacos at Senor Fish here in DTLA Reuniting with good friends at their rented Venice beach house – we can’t afford nice houses (okay, any houses), but we sure can rent them for the weekend When you live in Westlake,...
Allergies be damned

Allergies be damned

Kicking off the week with a late afternoon walk in the Cornfield. The goats were there too! I freakin’ love this park. It’s such a hippie hodgepodge of random things.
