Back in May 2020 Los Angeles County issued a series of unprecedented directives to citizens and businesses to help mitigate spread of the deadly global virus. This included shutting down shops, parks, beaches and all but essential businesses. The 'stay-at-home' order allowed outdoor exercise as long a mask was worn and safe distancing was practiced.
It occurred to me that we were living in an extraordinary (hopefully never to be repeated) moment in human history and I felt compelled to make a video record/archive of how life looked in my particular corner of the world - Los Angeles.
So, I used my daily exercise to visit nearby iconic locations in the area and created this 5 part series, which covers:
#1 Downtown Los Angeles
#2 Hollywood Boulevard, Sunset Boulevard
#3 Beverly Hills, UCLA, Century City, Melrose Avenue
#4 Santa Monica
#5 Venice Beach
I have pretty good knowledge of these areas and in addition to drawing attention to differences versus pre-pandemic life and fun facts, I took the opportunity to point out great places for photoshoots. After all, I am a photographer and this is a photography channel!
If you're new to my channel, it's about photography related things mainly in the Los Angeles area. I shoot with amazing people at inspiring places while providing some simple tips along the way.
