Abbot Kinney Blvd…

I hadn’t hung out with my sister Karen for a while so Katya and I made plans to head out to Los Angeles and have ourselves a photo day. We ended up settling on Abbot Kinney Blvd., a touristy street with lots going on. It’s not really a place I’d care to go normally but…

Taylor’s Not-Memorial Memorial Boogie…

“The past few years my friend Taylor has put his energy and heart into organizing events for the BASE community…and communities beyond.

Heritage Square Museum…

A few years ago, after many trips on the Pasadena freeway, I’d started to notice a group of historical houses as I headed to whenever I was going that day. From afar they seemed like an interesting place to shoot a few pics but over the last year or two I’d never made a trip…
