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.
“Jobs Not War.” The graffiti on Melrose Ave. gives the L.A. shopping district its edginess. Numerous boutiques, vintage stores (American Vintage being the best!), and modern furniture shops can be found on Melrose, as well as Fairfax High School. Imagine going to high school in the middle of the hippest shopping area in L.A. It was no wonder that the highschoolers were fashionistas.
I remember liking Melrose a lot at 5 years old, I guess I haven’t changed.
Downtown Los Angeles at night. L.A. may not be as much of a metropolis as the cities I’ve grown to love in the east coast, but recently I have been thinking a lot about going back to California where I grew up. It would be “hella” different for me after living in the east coast for the last 7 years. I sure miss good Iranian food, mountains AND ocean together, my relatives, and sunny after sunny day.
