Layovers aren’t generally fun: there’s lots of waiting around, often in uncomfortable positions, little to no sleep, and bad food. This one, however, was not one of those.

I had a lot of time in between flights coming from Kauai, so went for a stroll in Santa Monica. Walked around the pier, followed the coastline passing by Venice Beach, meeting some interesting characters along the way, and turning inside just before the Marina. A 7km walk I’d gladly do all over again, even though, coming in, I had no interest in LA in particular.

Having played a little bunch of GTA, I felt like I knew my way around even though it was my first time setting foot in Los Angeles — that speaks volumes for the artistry that goes into a video game. I was Trevor for a day, without the psycho part.

The final shot

  • Fico contente por ver que estás de voltas ás publicações, já fazia falta um bom blog com fotos de qualidade do um português. :) Grande abraço.

      Foi tempo demais sem meter aqui nada, ainda por cima com tanta foto a ocupar espaço em disco. Fiz aqui umas modificações que também me poupam muito tempo a publicar novos posts, portanto espero continuar. Obrigado, Chagas — abraço!!

      • Deixa lá que eu então nem o blog a funcionar tenho. Nem blog nem Flickr, tudo parado. A ver se arranjo tempo para meter alguma coisa online também. Abraço. :)

  • aHi Filipe! Just drop by your blog from googling on fuji x100. Love your awesome pictures and writings. Please contact me if you ever come to Indonesia!

    • Hi Mario! Thank you so much for the kinds words. I will take you on that offer for sure, one day. ;)
