Friday Field Trip - My LA Vacation

I was in Los Angeles visiting my parents a few weeks ago. I've got a few photos to share.

First, we went down to the beach so I could dip my toes in the Pacific, a place where I spent many, many hours growing up. It's still cold.


Another trip was to the Getty Museum. Gorgeous grounds.













And, we had lunch at a mall in Santa Monica. So long for this week. I'll have more next Friday.

Courtney - big on movie promo out there! I took that one for my grandson.

Maryann Miller said...

Wonderful photos, Terry. There is a lot of photographic talent in your family, starting with you.

I love the Smurf. I will probably go see that movie.

I was at the Getty a couple of years ago with my son who lives in L.A. What a spectacular place.

You are right. LA is a nice place. I gone there many times.

Wynter Daniels said...

Great pics. Is that Smurf really as big as it looks?

Terry Odell said...

Maryann - thanks. I did take some photography classes back in the day and our kids often accompanied us on field trips, so they picked up a bit as well.

Maryn - the Getty definitely is. I left LA before it was finished, but have been there a few times.

Jemi, Karen, Condos - thanks. My pleasure

Wynter - yep. Movie promo is a big industry there. I took one picture from the ground level and another from the second floor.
