Since I was driving down to the airport at LAX to drop off my parents I decided to make an evening of it and drive around taking some pictures.
My first stop was Venice beach. It certainly has a different vibe at night. I especially enjoyed taking pictures of bicyclists going by with led’s in their spokes as the long exposures made for some interesting shots.
Even the Murals and graffiti take on a different appearance at night.
Next I headed down towards an inlet.
Here I spotted this Pelican.
and while taking the pelicans picture I was lucky enough to spot a night Heron.
I then headed towards downtown Los Angeles, hoping to get a skyline shot.
I worked my way through the garment district and wound up in some sketchy neighborhood.
Right after I took the picture at the top of the post several police cars came speeding past and then were questioning someone just up ahead. I also became aware of huge numbers of homeless people sleeping on the sidewalk on the numerous side streets, so that was enough for one night, I made my way back to the freeway and headed home.
