Los Angeles is a sprawling city, with numerous districts and neighborhoods. I live on the so-called Westside area, which includes Brentwood, West LA, West Hollywood, Westwood, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Venice, Pacific Palisades, and Century City among several other neighborhoods. We live in Brentwood but Santa Monica, Westwood, Venice and Century City are part of what I would call my extended neighborhood. Almost everything I do is in these neighborhoods, especially Santa Monica, which happens to be right next to Brentwood. Here are some of my favorite places in my neck of the woods.
For Tina Shell’s Lens-Artists Challenge #36 – Around the Neighborhood
I am reaching the end of my door collection and the frequent rains in L.A. have put a damper on many door-hunting walks. I’ve been resorting to random photos from my library. Here are some nice doors from here, there, and elsewhere.
These old houses (with their very simple doors) were built in the early 20th century and are located at an old district of my hometown of Fortaleza, Brazil, next to a large cultural center (that’s where the reddish light comes from). Most houses are now shops, bars, and restaurants to serve locals and tourists visiting the center (last photo). When I took these photos, restaurants and bars were just opening for dinner, drinks and live music.
And then I stop and sit and eat.
Jy is wat jy dink - nie wat jy dink jy is nie. Dit help soms om hardop te lag vir wat jy dink of dink jy is.
