Daily Inspiration – Haim Live!

Hello world! How is it going? Crazy busy? Yeah, me too! Just stopping by to share a little bit about the best concert I’ve been to this year. I got tickets on pre-sale thanks to a password I was given from a friend and it was the best thing that could’ve happen. Tickets were gone in less than two hours so I felt like I had just won the lottery or something. HAIM has been one of my faves ever since they were on SNL last year. I got their record for Xmas and it’s constantly played in our home. The show was at the Wiltern which is already a pretty sick (in a good way) venue. Ok, back to the concert, the lights, their mixes, their performance, the music. It was the Best.Show. Ever! It really made me wish I had sisters and I knew how to play instruments besides just the tambourine (which I don’t think it really counts, Ha!) If you ever have the chance to see these ladies live, do it! Your mind will be blown. Check out some of their music here if you haven’t yet and let me know what you think. Happy almost Friday friends.

Daily Inspiration – Olvera Street Snapshots

A few weeks ago I found myself at Olvera Street for the first time after years of living in this city. It was a quick visit for work but a great one indeed. Take a look at some quick shots I took while there. Have you ever been?

Daily Inspiration – Vine Wall & Art Walk

This past weekend we went to the Brewery Art Walk, a cool event anybody visiting L.A should attend. Just imagine an old brewery transformed into art lofts and studios. Some artists live there, some work. Either way each space is pretty unique and super inspiring. I of course was in heaven with my camera. For that reason, expect a post this week of one of my favorite artists from the event. To start, this vine wall in one of the many walkways has been one of my favorite spots to photograph. Even the breaker boxes are artsy at this place. Have you ever been? Do you enjoy art walks in your town?

Daily Inspiration – Street Art

To me inspiration is everywhere and street art is something that always gets my attention. I’ve said before how much I admire Graffiti and how awesome I think Banksyis. Lately street murals are my favorite. There are tons in L.A and they’re always changing. If you like one, you have to go take pictures right away before they get tagged or replaced by a new one. This weekend I thought it would be cool to take pictures with my fish eye lens, check them out… Do you enjoy street art too? Are you like me and find inspiration in the weirdest places?

Daily Inspiration – Traffic

For those of you outside of Los Angeles you might have or might not have heard about the Carmageddon that is happening this weekend in L.A. The first time I heard how the news was referring to it, I thought it was pretty funny. We’ll be spending some quality time at home and avoiding going anywhere close to the 405. Some people are even throwing parties and events in honor of it, hilarious. All this traffic talk got me thinking about traffic related artsy things, so here are some cool ones that can make you smile while admiring traffic… from your computer! haha.

 

Too funny

Pretty picture

Traffic can be pretty too.

So pretty.

Traffic Jam

What do you think about the Carmageddon? Any other funny stories on the news you remember?

Hope you get inspired!
