So I take these "artist dates" (with myself) where I go some place to find creative inspiration.   It can be the boardwalk, a museum, the farmer's market, or one of the many neighborhoods in LA.  With a camera (or iPhone) in tow, I walk around, observe, and take pictures of interesting things that catch my attention - shadows, lines, movements...  It's like a fun exercise for my creative muscles! I always come home more excited about photography and more grateful for life.

Here are some iPhone photos from my little artist date to The Getty Center.  It's amazing how you can keep going to the same place and see it differently each time.  The beauty of art, it's everywhere!
