While visiting Los Angeles for our 2nd oldest daughter’s “
Geektastic Nuptial Extravaganza” wedding celebration, I took a bunch of photos of random objects and such, which I have added here for your viewing pleasure. Click on a thumbnail to view one image, or click through to see them all.
[edit: Forgot to mention, I took all of these with my phone, not with my usual point-and-shoot camera. So, they’re not all the sharpest images, but it was what I had at the time. Plus, it was easier to upload some of these for a game of “Where’s Lisa” on G+ with a few of my friends.]
I fell in love with the carvings and stained glass surrounding this doorway. The most amazing part is that this building is empty! What I’d give to be able to buy this building and turn it into an art studio….
I loved how the light came through these bottles.
Such an interesting mix of textures.
So industrial! This was in the middle of the table at a Korean restaurant.
Circles, straight lines, organic shapes, oh my!
This little guy was too cute not to shoot!
I just loved the design in the corrosion on this drain.
Just a drawer pull, but I thought it was cool.
Flowers! California (or at least, LA) was full of tiny little gardens filled with colorful flowers of all sorts. I just couldn’t resist!
These lilies and that little tree just begged to have their picture taken.
More lilies posing for the camera.
I’m beginning to think the lilies are a bunch of camera hogs….
Such a pretty little scene, how could I refuse?
Such a sweet little flower.
A rose by any other name…
More roses. Just loved the colors on that wall, door, trim and the flower.
A single shy beauty.
Tiny blooms at the corner of this house.
This equine was inside a Red Robin restaurant.
Airport Jungle. Yep, it’s at LAX.
Jungle Sculpture inside LAX.
Lady Liberty stands guard over a variety of “antiques”.
I assume this is a light post, but it looks more like a tall piece of modern art.
This mosaic was on a wall across the street from our hotel. Very Deco looking.
This potted palm was inside a restaurant where we ate breakfast several times.
I just loved the way the evening light hit this palm tree.
More palm trees. They make you feel like you’re on a tropical island.
This single petal lying on the sidewalk seemed just a little sad.
Loved the look of these industrial pipes.
Another section of the pipes.
These hippos on the front porch were such a whimsical display, how could I not get their picture?
Sky. Light. Get it?
Loved this rusty old spout!
I’m guessing these are bicycle stands, but not really sure…
What a juxtaposition of these materials and textures!
This little guy was standing guard inside a Korean restaurant.
Found this inside LAX. Love that copper!
I had some fun with this! It was actually the headboard of our bed at the hotel.
I love this little vignette! Found this at a Thai restaurant.
This was in the same Thai restaurant. Not sure what kind of creature she’s supposed to be, but the carving is lovely.
Here is the full display, also inside the same Thai restaurant.
I don’t often comment on trash bins, but this one is fab!
I couldn’t decide which view of this particular wall I preferred, so I put up several views.
Yet another view.
One more view.
