Santa Monica taken with my iPhone and edited in VSCO cam
Most of these were either taken at Venice beach (skip the boardwalk, it's full of "quirky" homeless dudes who smell) or the Santa Monica Pier. Although I haven't posted specifically about Santa Monica, it was one of my favorite places to go because it was right on the bus line, and it's the quintessential beach town. It's a tourists favorite but for good reason.
Santa Monica - iPhone only and unedited!
It's so easy to take for granted, but California sunsets at the beach (just a 20 min drive away) will be among the things I miss the most about LA. My short three week stay has already been so fulfilling I feel like it's invigorated my life again. I've made connections, both professional and personal, that I hope will help me pursue residency out here, reunited with friends from many different stages of my life, and was fortunate to be shown so much of this beautiful city. My flight back to Baltimore is on Saturday and I already don't want to leave!
