We Run LA

This is a series of photography that I took around downtown Los Angeles. There’s just something about LA that I can’t get away from. Maybe it’s because I moved around to so many different places growing up in the LA County and it feels like home to me. I have lived in some good areas and I have lived in some pretty bad areas but my overall upbringing just makes me appreciate the potential that LA can offer. That being said, I decided to once again go and shoot some photos in downtown and I saw some interesting graffiti.

The first picture from Burbank.

So one day I decided that I really needed a haircut but I had a little problem…no car. My barber was a 40 minute drive from where I was staying in Burbank but I was looking like a hobo so I decided that I would take the bus. The estimated time was anywhere from 2-3 hours to get to my destination.

Knowing that I decided to bring my wonderful Nikon and read the manual. It got boring pretty quick then I just decided to get a little experimental and take photos while riding the bus. This photo series takes you on a journey with me as I went from Burbank into what people deem as “south central” LA to the downtown area. There is no particular order but these photos show some of everyday type of people and a little snippet of some LA culture ranging from residential areas to where people eat and transportation. These are raw and completely unedited photos and I sat on the left side of the bus for no particular reason. There will be a part 2 to this series coming soon.

Funny enough, it’s the same day I took this photo.

Staying creative and productive can be a difficult task if you aren’t focus or having a “block” of some sort…ya know that moment in which you just wanna bang your head against a brick wall like a whacky Looney Tune. Especially if it’s a project whether it be for your own individual goal or for a group of people they are relying on your input and work.

You either have two options. One is to get it done as perfectly as possible in a timely manner. The other option…..is to get that shit done. Period.

Personally when I am experiencing a block I tend to Read the rest of this entry »
