Norooz poster in “Vestvood” a.k.a. Tehrangeles. (Iranians pronounce “W” with a “V” sound). This photo is compliments of my dad who lives in L.A. It makes me miss that California sunshine and the strip with all of the Iranian businesses. The kebab at Shamshiri or the Persian poetry books at Ketabsara.  #westwood #CA #persians #iranians #norooz

Cruising on a Harely Davidson along the Pacific Ocean is a 360 degree difference from the every day grimy subway commute in NYC. SoCal is motorcycle and car land, and without one you are stranded. When you are driving on the open road, epic mountains frame the ocean and you feel calm being surrounded by natural beauty. California landscapes just don’t compare to anywhere else in the country.

New York billboards are so much smaller than the extravagant ones in Los Angeles. A couple of months ago, I posted a shot of the same Beatles billboard and it was double the size in L.A.

There’s nothing like the billboards of L.A. The Beatles are thrown on modern streets and iTunes all at once.

DON’T MACH ME   An F-18 Super Hornet passes through the sound barrier, creating a  visible ‘vapour cone’ above the Miramar Air Station in San Diego,  California.  (Photo: Steve Skinner / Solent News via the Telegraph)

Wow!

So wormholes do exist!
Ok, not really, but it’s still an amazing photo. / @acarvin
