Pre-Blog Days In Southern California

I was talking to an old friend of mine from Los Angeles the other day which brought back some photographic memories from living there 9 years ago.  I shot all of these images, most of which were at least 10 years ago.  First of two posts.

  1. Great photos. As much as you love the outdoors and hiking, I can’t imagine you living in LA. I don’t even like driving through it.


  2. Thank you so much for sharing, Michael!


  3. Great series, Mike. A different view, a different life. 🙂


  4. Great photos! Love the different angles you’ve taken them from. Looks like you had a great time. Did the sailor and his girlfriend pose for you?
