My Week in Photos: July 14 – 20
Family, tacos, comedy, downtown LA…and crochet? I was surprisingly outdoorsy and indoorsy all at the same time.
And it's Obon season! Little cousins in kimonos? Yeah…read more. 🙂 Enjoy!

So I think I messed up and left a chunk of images off from Sunday evening of last week…we'll just pretend like that didn't happen and we'll start off with this adorable photo of Snow!

IMG_2079
In Venice for an open mic night at a place I've been to for trivia before. But first! Tacos. And my favorite…wall murals! So many!

IMG_2080
The taco place also had a bunch of those machines where you drop in a quarter and you get a fun thing. I got a tiny coffee.

Two al pastor, one asada

IMG_2082
At a pub called the Cock n' Bull.

Played my first real game of non-computer darts!

IMG_2083
Unfortunately most of my darts wanted to kiss the ground.

IMG_2084
Evan and I cheerin' on Zach at the open mic. He basically went last…which meant we played darts for like 2 hours.

IMG_2072
The next morning there were a few talented photographers with popular Instagram accounts hosted at the Getty. A colleague and I popped by to take some photos for The Getty.

Chelsea near the cactus garden

The lovely cactus garden high above the horrible 405

Would love to find myself some "art socks"

IMG_2074
A dramatic sky to finish the work day

IMG_2075
Downtown foggy view on the way to L.A. Live. Basically a huge complex of theaters, a sports arena, shops, restaurants…it's kind of horrible hah.

IMG_2071
Why am I at L.A. Live you may wonder? To see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in 4Dx…hahahahha ughhhhhh. 4Dx is like…trying to be the next gen of movie experiences. You wear 3D glasses, but your individiual seat also moves and reacts to the action in the movie. It rumbles, it shakes…and sometimes water falls on your face. The room fogs, the ground shakes. Etc. I'll say that the plot of this film was preeeetty predictable and boring, but that I'll always love Caeser and it was a surprisingly complex emotional story. The 4Dx needs some work. Ha. Was interesting!

IMG_2076
Flash forward. 4:30 AM. Droppin' Kikz off at the airport. She's off to a week in the midwest.

IMG_2077
Flash forward. Fell asleep after the drop off a biiiit to long and missed the morning shuttle at work and took the tram. Was a pleasant start to the morning!

IMG_2085
Processing some photos from the day before. You can see this one here!

Stripes and spots

IMG_2086
The sky these days, dang!

IMG_2123
Back to downtown again! Never sick of it.

IMG_2124
Came across this little dog park on my way looking for a little movie theater.

IMG_2125
I'm in an alley. I'm confused…

IMG_2126
Found it!!!!!!!! Totally doesn't look like a typical theater facade. My bad.

IMG_2127
Ticket for a film fest in town.

IMG_2128
Zach having another big week, he had a little part in a film called Windowlicker. It's totally an aesthetic punch in the face. While your nose is bleeding your heart is choked and your face is laughing. It's all very overwhelming. But Zach's role is in a fake Real World style reality show.

IMG_2129
I stood with Eli consuming free tacos and watching a band continue to set up, then sing, then set up more at the after party thing.

IMG_2130
Back to Gettyland, through the rabbithole.

IMG_2131
And here's the end of the day.

IMG_2132
Off on a Thursday this week, and LOOK at the amazing surprise. TWO RED TOMATOES. MY FIRST TOMATOES!

I LOVE YOU FIRST BORN TOMATO!

Gotta snuggle the boy to sleep first

IMG_2139
I think I'm looking more and more like gollum these days.

IMG_2140
Why are medical buildings so square and horrifying always

IMG_2141
I wonder if there are furniture companies that only do waiting room designs

IMG_2142
Check up went for 2 hours. Whew. Turns out I have 2 cavities. UGHHHHH. Need to go back Wednesday…

IMG_2143
IMG_2144

Friday was an event with No Age at the Center.

IMG_2165
This meant taking lots of photos. One of the interns this summer wants to do a fashion/style feature and I'm helping with the visuals. Lots of trendy peeps. So trendy.
