Los Angeles

It’s day 2 of our LA trip. Yesterday the focus was Santa Monica Pier, today it will be theĀ Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Manhattan Beach

We stayed in Manhattan Beach, so took a short trip down to the Manhattan Beach Pier (photo info: 30mm, 1/100 sec, f/9, ISO 100).

Downtown Los Angeles

Our first destination in Downtown LA will be the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The hall opened in 2003 and seats 2,265 people. It was designed by Frank Gehry. This is our first view of the concert hall after parking our car (photo info: 18mm, 1/1250 sec, f/8, ISO 200).

Our first view of the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

While capturing photos of the concert hall something else got our attention, the filming of a Volkswagon Beetle commercial. So, we did a little of our own filming.

The Grove

The Grove is a retail and entertainment complex in LA. It’s next to the historical Farmers Market. Great place to visit during the holidays (photo info: 50mm, 1/1000 sec, f/7.1, ISO 200).
