Today is another CicLAvia event, in the heart of LA. The bike routes connected Chinatown, Boyle Heights, and MacArthur Park. We parked our car in Chinatown and rode our way through Downtown LA's financial district to MacArthur Park, and stopped by Little Tokyo for lunch on our way back.
With my minimal setup, just the M9 and 35'Cron, I caught a few keepers along the way. This bike event always gave us a great experience because it allowed us to pass through places that we normally took for granted, showing us beauty that can only be appreciated if you slow down.
The route also past right in front of the Bradbury building, so of course I couldn't resist to go inside and just bask in its beauty for a little bit. I wasn't expecting to take that many pictures so I didn't put in a freshly charged battery and ended up running out of juice around lunch time. I was glad to at least caught this last image, though.
Went to have lunch with father-in-law today at Din Tai Fung, in the Arcadia Mall. They told us it was going to be 1.5-hour wait... and we saw that a new Uncle Tetsu bakery just opened next door and there was a long line for that too. So why not kill two birds? We waited in line for the cheesecake while waiting for our table for lunch. Here are just some shots while being bored.
My Journey into Leica...
A path not to be taken lightly, not without reservations, and not without dedication, but the results can be sweet, OH SO SWEET! This is a documentation of my trials and tribulations into the world of Leica Rangefinder Photography, and I hope you'll enjoy coming along with me.
