Exploring Los Angeles With The Wife
Although my wife and our two dogs Sinatra & Lucy all call the Temecula valley home, I was actually born in Los Angeles. Therefore, I have a certain love embedded in my DNA for the city of angels despite the traffic and pollution that can make Los Angeles seem unbearable at times. Los Angeles has everything a great city should have from cultural diversity, architectural genius, unique history and a deep level of artistic talent. Walking along the streets paved with names of famous celebrities and seeing the iconic Hollywood sign still excites me every time I visit Los Angeles and that is why we decided to make a short day trip up there this past week. Corissa is from the San Diego area so she hasn’t spent much time in Los Angeles so I decided one of the places she had to see was Griffith Park and the Griffith Observatory. This particular area is a popular place where wedding photographers will take engagement photos of couples, which is another reason why I wanted to take her. I figured it would give me the freedom to explore the area more in-depth while taking some fun personal photographs of our day. Corissa got dressed up as if we were doing a fashion photo shoot, we headed up to Griffith Park and here is the story of our day together!
After seeing the Griffith Observatory, park area and taking some photographs we headed down to West Hollywood off Melrose Avenue to grab some happy hour food and drinks. We stopped at a great little French themed place called Comme Ca. They made the most delicious cocktails with freshly made ingredients that packed a Rocky Balboa punch. Basically, what I’m saying is if you are in the area you need to drop in a get your pre-game going!
Thank you Corissa for being my model for the day!
