The Getty Center & Double Exposures

Peter had to view an exhibit at the Getty Center for his Art Appreciation class, and it turned into a kind of family outing.

Downtown Los Angeles: Historic and Arts District

It seems like I can't get away from Downtown LA lately. My sister came home for the weekend and my cousin, Camille, came over. We didn't know what to do and it was hot outside so we wanted to go somewhere air conditioned. I suggested The Last Bookstore, since neither of them had ever been to it. Decided to take this opportunity to bring around my camera and play around with some new post-processing tricks.

Favorite Authors: Haruki Murakami

 I'm no literature expert, the last literature class I took was 5 years ago in high school, & the closest thing I took to a literature class in college was about reading and writing scientific articles and labs. However, my love of reading has never died down, although it has been neglected due to my studies. I first fell in love with Haruki Murakami's novels when I read Kafka on the Shore a few years ago. When I first read it, I couldn't put it down. I was pulled into the story of Kafka and Hoshino, I re-read it a few months ago and found different parts of the story sticking out to me compared to when I first read it. Recently, I picked up Murakami's latest novel, Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage. Once again, another novel I couldn't put down (I finished it in less than a week). I've read a handful of Murakami novels, which is why I've decided to sit down and share my thoughts on one of my (safe to say) favorite authors.

Labor Day Roadtrip to NorCal: San Jose // Carmel

This is the second year in a row that a few of my friends and I decided to road trip up north to visit our friend Vanessa, who moved away from SoCal to do amazing things and became a teacher for Teach For America.
