DETOUR: GRIFFITH PARK OBSERVATORY
Sometimes when I am in the neighborhood, I'll go by the observatory. I like to see Los Angeles from here, I enjoy the art deco architecture and I like watching locals and tourists take it all in. Although, the selfie stick mania is disruptive. Sometimes I'll bring a snack and enjoy the view and sometimes a hike on the nearby trails. It may be tourist over run but the views especially at night are worth it.
For my creativity this type of exploratory breather is essential - change of scenery, different perspective, fresh air and plenty of sunshine. Sharing a few images from my latest spontaneous visit.
p/s and I'll usually stop by Sqirl before or after, it's so close!
