Empire State

I wonder how many times this particular binocular thing has been photographed, probably more times than the total amount of shutter clicks I have made on all my cameras I have ever owned.

Big City Lights

LA is a pretty cool city. We were there in the middle of the LA winter and I was wearing shorts most of the time. If that’s what the weather is like, I want to move there.

I’ve lived in Switzerland for over 15 years now and its somehow worn out its charm on me. So I find myself daydreaming about where else in the world I could go, it’s always places I’ve visited. Somehow LA features on that list, which I find odd as the US is one of the last places I would have thought I would have ever wanted to live in.

Beverly Hills Sign

I felt pretty lucky standing there taking a photo of this sign when the Ferrari drove past, with the size of the houses around I’m surprised there weren’t more of them.

Vegas Lights

I’ve been to Vegas 3 times now, and each time for some reason the place sucks my photographic vision dry. I’ve only ever been there on short trips with family.

Trying to balance my photography and time with the family is quite hard especially when we live on opposite sides of the planet and only see each other for a few weeks every year.

I think I’ll have to start trying to get up early in the morning, that’ll give me an hour or two to take a few shots of the places I visit. I took this photo early in the morning from the Hotel room we were staying in.

ISO 4000

The Fuji X-E1 is an impressive camera, this was taken at iso 4000 handheld.

No Parking

I’m guessing the double vision effect of this mural down at Venice Beach was intentional, somehow it’s more effective in this photograph with all the surroundings removed.

Newport Silhouette

We visited a couple of the beaches in the LA area while we were there, bit of a strange thing to do in winter but it was pretty warm. Newport felt like the most “normal” beach we visited, Venice was full of “crazies” and Santa Monica felt quite Sterile and uppity.

Venice Beach Skater

LA is a place of great contrasts, from Santa Monica, Hollywood to Venice beach all very different. Venice beach was interesting and I was pleasantly surprised there when a young lady bought me back the 100 dollars I had accidentally dropped in her little shop.

Las Vegas Palms

I’ve been to vegas a couple of times before, I do like the place for a day or two, it’s amazing what they do with the hotels, and all the lights are great. I still would like to spend more time exploring the areas around vegas, so guess at some point will try and head back that way.

I really only took a handful of pictures while I was there, I really wasn’t feeling it for some reason.
