One Good Life in Los Angeles

Roslyn's observations about places and events around Southern California

Venice – walking and shooting – neighborhood and Abbott Kinney



A couple of weekends ago I walked around Venice with the Photographic Adventurers run by Will. Although I’ve spent a considerable amount of time in Venice during my lifetime, we first walked through a neighborhood I was not familiar with. Living in a city as vast as LA it’s not uncommon to discover new areas.


I enjoy meeting up with fellow photographers. I always learn something.


Tree trunks are one of my favorite subjects to photograph. I liked the fungi on this one.

VenicePeeling wood is just as good!


Finding odd, unusual items to photograph it always satisfying.


This feline relaxing on his royal purple throne was eager to pose for his portrait!


These pink flowers peering out of the moss (albeit artificial) appealed to me.


Who could resist this face framed in the doorway?


Out of the neighborhood and on Abbott Kinney Boulevard, the hip, trendy place to be on a Saturday! No secret I LOVE reflections and these two mannequins seemed to epitomize the well-dressed patrons of this area.

Although I’ve walked along Abbott Kinney many times, this time I was looking for some off-beat images to photograph. Think I found them!

I am an explorer and creative person. I've had many jobs, careers and interests... everything in life and the universe fascinates me. Born in Brighton, England, I've lived my entire adult life in Los Angeles. Recently I rediscovered photography and I am busy learning everything I can about it. It's a great excuse for getting outside, wandering around and stopping to look at things.
