This adventure will be preceded by a long, cramped, trans-Atlantic flight.
I don't even remember when I took this. Sometimes I get bored and play with photo booth on airplanes.
Unless something goes horribly wrong with my life plans between now and the beginning of June, I will be living in Belgium for three months during the summer. The flights have already been booked and I realized that I will be traipsing around Europe for exactly 99 days.
"99 Days in Europe"
Doesn't that sound like a fun set of blog posts to follow?
Although much of my time will be spent in Belgium doing practical research-related work, I will have time to hop across the English Channel, take the train over to Paris, and towards the end of the trip take a couple of weeks to live like a nomad and see how much of the rest of Europe I can take in. While I may not have internet access while hopping between hostels and such, I hereby vow to to share this summer in the form of a minimum 99 distinct photographs (and hopefully distinct blog posts, where possible).
Yes, I'm still in Los Angeles. The trip is just about over, though, and I'll be back in Provo in no time.
Over the last few days my time has been limited. I have plenty of images to post, but since I'm prepping for another shoot the time it would take to pull together a really meaty post needs to be spent on getting model releases printed and testing a lighting setup.
But here's the Griffith Observatory for your enjoyment.
I wish I could have gone in for a proper visit (it was full of adorable nerdy displays about space and science), but I only did a quick walk-though. I did, however, get a good angle of it from the Hollywood Hills with downtown LA in the background.
Even though I've been slacking on the blog posts, I swear I'm still around and still making photographs. At the moment, I'm making photographs in LA.
I've already shot at one location - Glen Ivy Spa - but I'm sorting through the photos still. In the meantime, here are some photos I took in downtown LA of the Disney Concert Hall and surrounding buildings.
I have to admit, I find Gehry architecture a little over-the-top, but it makes for excellent abstracts. I'm hoping to get around to the front entrance on another night while the light is still good.
