mila | adventures . los angeles

i was telling curtis that morning as i left to join some new friends on an urban adventure... "i feel like it's my first day of school and i just want the kool kids to like me".   he smiled, "you'll do just fine love."  then he packed me off to the train station and away i went.

i met up with a group of photographers from the [b]school for a day trip around los angeles.  we took the train from orange county to union station and then the walking commenced.  what an amazing day!  i might not have been at the top of my form with inspiration since i prefer to shoot people not places per se and i was A LOT BIT intimidated by the company i was keeping that day. some of these guys were major pros.  and i needed bandaids for my left foot since it got into a huge argument with my shoe... ah but i had fun none the less.  



meet the crew {geeks on a train} ...


check out the sights around town ...

  1. LOVE the pics Michelle!! I would agree, I love shooting people more than places but I think you pulled out some sweet inspiration! I hate that I work full time and can't go on these day trips. It really makes me sad. :(

  9. Wow - congrats on being brave enough to shoot with the [b] school crew. There are some big pros in that group. It looks like you had some fun though. I'm photo walking Chicago soon and I hope I get some good photos like you did.

    Glad to see you safely back from your adventures abroad. I enjoyed watching your blog steam. It looks like you are very adventuresome!
