Urban Light

Thanks to Mirage+Light Photography on Instagram, I discovered the existence of this sculpture outside LACMA! It’s called Urban Light, by Chris Burden. It is made of 202 restored street lamps from the 1920s and 1930s. We made a trip to LA for Valentine’s Day, and I dragged my husband and puppies with me to this, because this type of thing is what I love to photograph most. I am fascinated by light, I love vintage stuff, and my absolute FAVORITE thing to do is to find beauty in “ordinary” things! So basically, I was over the moon photographing this. It was fun to see how many people were there too, I guess it’s a romantic place for Valentine’s Day! 🙂

Unleashed by Petco Surf Dog Competition

There are two things that San Diego loves: surfing and dogs. There are more things, yes, like tacos, but this is about the marriage of those two wonderful things, ergo: dog surfing. I had seen photos of San Diegan surfing dogs circulating the internet, but never witnessed it in person. When I heard about the Surf Dog Competition, I HAD to go. It was everything as promised; many surfing dogs, ranging from small to extra large, as well as some sort of buddy competition, where dogs surfed together or with their owners, as well as a dog play area, dog photo booth, and many dog-friendly vendors. We brought our sweet baby Widdle, and he had a great time! It was a little hot for him because he was a bit of a wimp, but otherwise, it is a great event for the whole fur-family! We couldn’t stay the whole time, due to Widdle’s dainty composure, but what we did get to do/see was a lot of fun!
