What to do this weekend? Visit DTLA.

11 Aug

Aren’t you just in awe of how time flies? Already the weekend of August 12, the dog days of Summer 2011. Where does time go? (Insisto en mi teoria de que somewhere in a galaxy far far away, someone is speeding up the clocks, making time go faster… so we can just catch up. But I digress...)

Como seguimos en el presente, gracias a Dios, aquí les pongo unas fotos que tomé en un field trip con mi amiguita Robin cuando hicimos un viaje a DTLA (her new hood!) where we discovered some unconventional photo opps which had a few film references. (Thank you my friend for an amazing day.)

Downtown LA is the most interesting place in LA right now. It’s all happening down there. But don’t take my word for it. Plan a little trip and see for yourself. Come to think of it, take some time off this weekend and enjoy the scenery, will you? Aprovechemos las 48 horas que tenemos este fin.

He dicho.

At the Los Angeles Central Market. Chinese food sounds good!

25 cents will take you up Angel's Flight and make you relive a little bit of LA history.

Then you can admire the green view above Angels Knoll Park. It was the scene for the movie 500 Days of Summer.

Fancy a spot for meditation? This bench will do the trick.

One of the underground scenes in downtown. The movie "The Soloist" was shot here.

This is a thing of beauty, if only because an LA street is completely empty. Very uncommon.

A really tall woman was standing next to a really tall building. (It's The Bonaventure hotel, where the Clint Eastwood movie "In the Line of Fire" was made.)
