This is an ode to the City of Angels, the art I have a renewed love for as a result of living in LA, all the walks I’ve taken, and, most importantly, my 39th year.
All 39 shots were taken within the last week (my first week of “39”; the quotations = I do not feel this can possibly be my real age), and many of the shots were done against pieces that have particular meaning for me while some are purely whimsical backdrops that I felt would be perfect for ringing in 39.
The series starts with a mistake (i.e. a shot that got taken randomly): “take 39”. I decided it was meant to be the opener. There are also several well-known street artists’ pieces, and I intentionally placed my favorite of the series by Wrdsmth (he is a genius) as the final picture. He inspires me on a weekly basis.
Turning 39, my goals are simple (I will continue to):
- lose weight
- get fit
- find inspiration
- inspire more
- dream big
I hope you enjoy 39 as much as I enjoyed making it. ❤
Aspire to inspire others…
