A Walk in the Park

Not to long ago a friend and I went to find a new hiking trail. It was narrow and over grown. I was hoping for wide open and on top of a mountain. I did manage to find some cool images there. It’s amazing what you can find when you take a minute to look at what is there. My favorite part – the random blue bridge with graffiti in the middle of the woods.

Los Angeles County Fair

After literally years of convincing my girlfriend and I ventured to the Los Angeles County Fair. Taking my camera offers a few things for me. A way to express my eye and my art with photography… and an escape from reality. This, to be honest, started as being an escape from reality but as we walked around and I got in to it I started to realize just how beautiful the fair can be. The lights, the atmosphere, the night sky, etc.

(I am also trying a new method of posting my photos so let me know what you think)

This welcomed us. As if a gate way into the unknown… or maybe to the mountains.

Arial View… of some of it. I think it’s great to see all of the lights, the night surrounding it, and all of the trailers stored showing just how mobile all of this fun is.

LA Fair Rides

The Rides. The rides of the fair offer a beauty all in their own I have discovered. Some moving. Some still. In some the ride is the art. In others the people on the ride is the art. Spinning, emotion, and lights…

LA Fair Ferris Wheel

Prizes. What’s a fair without the prizes!? It seems like everyone either had the little ones or the large oversized prizes. For the most part I found them the most beautiful, and the cheapest, when hanging inside of the games.

LA Fair Oversizes Prize

The Fair Food. This one was captured the least. For two important reasons. 1) it was WAY overpriced and 2) when we did get it the hotdog fell apart and the funnel cake was a powdered sugar delicious mess. Here’s a couple though.

This next picture has quite the story. We pony’d up the $20 bucks to ride a ferris wheel that Bubba set up that morning. My girlfriend wanted a romantic ride, I wanted to take pictures, and… well.. this girl wanted to ride with us. I looked over and noticed we had a follower. After explaining she was not with us and we preferred to ride alone she tried to get out but the ferris wheel started moving. For the next few turns around the wheel – she was ours. Turns out no one else wanted to ride with her and we looked fun and inviting. Guess thats not a horrible quality. She loved heights (thankfully) and just looked out with wide eyes the whole time making me feel bad that I was so eager to get rid of her in the beginning.

And… my girlfriend on the ferris wheel – a welcomed guest. Notice the graffiti on the windows… classy.

Behind the Sign

Not to long ago I hiked up behind the hollywood sing and took a panoramic photo. It was a little difficult because you have to hold the camera up above the fence – and yes, thats what I really did. Luckily it all lined up. This is a 3 part print available [here].

If you live or are ever in the Hollywood area I recommend the hike. It’s great and the payoff is worth it.

New Los Angeles Prints

I have seen the Hollywood many times. I have seen downtown Los Angeles many times. The goal for these photos was to try and capture both in a way that is a little more artistic and different that normal.

What I learned while taking these photos is that every day we pass things that we take for granted. Maybe it’s downtown Los Angeles for me but maybe is the old coffee shop on the corner for you, or a tree in a park you always run by, or even the neighbors dog. These, by no means, are the most amazing pictures ever taken of Los Angeles but what they did for me was help me open my eyes again and see whats around me when most days I just let it fly by.

Here are some more photos. They have been listed for sale on [etsy] and on [www.bluegiraffeimages.com].

Riding + Photography.

My white bicycle. I love this thing. Its great to ride and its great to lean against the wall of my apartment. The best thing about it is that it allows me to carry out two of my passions at the same time. Riding + Photography. I explored new places, met some new people and got some great images to go with it. This has also provided inspiration for a graphics prints set I will put out in a few. All of these are available for prints but whether you enjoy them here or on your wall I hope that it can motivate you to grab and go. It’s amazing what confidence a camera in your hand can give you to go new places and do new things. Go find your parking garage.
