The Getty Museum

If you're in LA, one of the things you have to do is visit the Getty Museum. It is perched atop a hill overlooking all of Los Angeles, and on a very clear day, you can see all the way to Catalina Island. The building itself is something to see, with bold architectural lines, made entirely out of a beautiful natural stone.

I loved all the geometric lines and shadows I found.

The views are beautiful, the art collection is amazing, and the garden is really cool. Unfortunately, the gardens were closed for renovation when I was there, but you can see a glimpse of it here:

The day I went, LA was covered in this strange mixture of what looked like clouds, fog, and smog, all obscuring any chance at a clear, beautiful view. So, I just took more pictures of the complex itself.

  3. Wow, gorgeous, and gorgeous photos! I'm pretty sure I won't be in LA anytime soon but I'll definitely keep that in mind if I ever find myself there.
