Story: One of my favourite things about living in Los Angeles is the light and colour that surrounds you wherever you are.
I take daily walks around the Los Feliz and East Hollywood neighbourhoods where I live, using my camera as a journal and taking note of the things that stop and draw me in. It can be the people, trees, light on the side of a building – anything really, but I don’t analyse it too much, just shoot and keep on walking.
There’s so much to be discovered here, and LA feels like many smaller cities all rolled into one. Moving a few blocks in either direction can bring a change of scenery, architecture, and culture.
These photos were taken in a two-mile radius, and there are still new things I notice every time I head out. Knowing that there’s so much more to explore keeps me inspired to shoot every time I have the chance.
