Balloon Dog

After about four months of waiting, I was finally able to visit The Broad, in downtown Los Angeles over Valentine’s Day. This museum had just recently opened and ever since I learned about it’s conception, I had been looking forward to visiting here. This museum was created by by philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad and offers free admission. The only tricky part is that it is so popular that you have to reserve your tickets months in advance. Represented here in this photos is Balloon Dog by Jeff Koons. This is one of the pieces that I had really wanted to see along with Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrored Room which, come to find out, you need a different reservation for. Fortunately I was able to get it and get in almost four hours later…still worth it though. There were a lot of great pieces of modern art here and it was definitely one of the most interesting and coolest museums I have been to. You can also check out more of Yayoi Kusama’s work through this link. I have pictures of the Infinity Room but I found that these photos turned out better, not to mention a giant balloon dog is fun to look at. There was nothing crazy done with this photo. I tried to take it when no one was in the area and also kept it as natural as possible in order to preserve the work of Jeff Koons as it was meant to be viewed. Hope you like the shot and get a chance to visit this awesome museum. Please follow and like...

Blue Glass

If you have never seen the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles then you need to check it out. This place has some of the wildest architecture I have seen in person. Frank Ghery is the architect and he did a amazing job with this buildings design. This almost fully metallic structure stands out from all the other surrounding buildings. It is notably shorter than all the surrounding skyscrapers and is also more eye catching. It has steel points jutting out in all directions and curves that almost rembles waves in some areas. When the sun is out and there are no clouds this building shines reflections everywhere and the curves of the metal really show because of the smooth contrasts of light and shadows that wrap all around the building. I have some other picture of this same building on a sunnier day but I took this one when it was cloudy out. Everytime I come here I try to walk around the building a bit before taking any shots in order to get a better feel and idea of where I want to get shots that day. This day I was particularly attracted by the back of the building near s flower fountain. There is a staircase on the building’s side that is on the street level that you can take up to get here. I saw the cool blue color of the glass that was featured here and couldn’t help but have my attention drawn to it. I followed the lines up and started snapping away. I was pretty close to the building for this shot and had been look almost straight up. This is a RAW image file that was barely touched apart from the basic curves and...
