Walking in L.A.

Here's my Saturday Snapshot, my contribution to Alyce's weekly meme over on her At Home with Books website. To play, TAKE A PICTURE (don't just swipe one from the web) and share it. I recently moved into the heart of the city and and am enjoying walking everywhere. Last night, spurred by the sounds of jazz in the air, I wandered over to LACMA (the Los Angeles County Museum of Art) with my dog, Charlie, where folks were congregating for a free Friday night concert. Charlie loves adventuring and relaxing on the grass. He doesn't much care for shopping so I didn't take him into the LACMA bookstore. Just in case you like art, art books AND shopping, here's the LACMA shop link. While I will miss the friendships I formed in Oak Park, I do love the city life! Who says nobody walks in L.A.?

  4. Your dog looks like he's ready to play! How great you can get to so many places on foot. I'm always glad to see cities that are pedestrian friendly.

    1. L.A. is not very pedestrian friendly in general but there are some neigbhorhoods that are and this is one of them. We moved here very specifically so I could walk to the bank, the grocery store, etc. The fact that I have an amazing museum right next door is an extra added bonus!

  5. I am so glad you stopped in! It appears your dog enjoyed the walk as much as you. How fortunate to have easy access to jazz in the park!

    Have a terrific weekend!

  6. Your dog is gorgeous. I think "Walking in LA" would be a great name for a book or a movie.

    1. I think I stole it from a song title, or lyrics anyway.

    1. San Francisco is a true city. An amazing place. LA is mostly, as the song says, 'a great big freeway' BUT it really does have some wonderful areas within the megalopolis that you must see!

  14. I LOVE Charlie! He has a happy face :D

    Hey, Sim, forgive me because this is completely off-topic, but I just this minute put the absolutely final touches on my script. I think it is really good - I'm all excited!! But, I have no idea what to do with it? LOL! Do you know anything about this?

  16. I haven't been to this museum but it is worth a visit on my next trip to LA. The concerts sound like a good reason to visit.

    1. It's a terrific museum; "we" have some wonderful artists represented here including Jackson Pollack, Magritte, Matisse, Picasso as well as renaissance masters and an exciting modern wing.

  17. Charlie is so cute. How is howling though...especially in an urban environment?

    Thank you for your comments on my water lilies. I did start out with a good shot..had to brighten it up some as it was cloudy when the original was taken, so it was too dark. Then had fun editing!

    1. Howling is my least favorite part about beagles! It's lessened quite a bit with age though and so far here in the city, it's been fine. We live in a dog-friendly area of the city which helps! Thanks for stopping by Abrianna. Love your name, btw.
