LACMA Photo Diary
When we were planning our trip to LA, the first place that was suggested to me was LACMA. Embarrassing as it is, I'd never heard of it prior to its suggestion, mainly because LA used to be just home of the stars, Build-A-Bear, and Disneyland to me. I wouldn't have been able to appreciate the works of art on display if my parents had taken me when I was younger, nor would I have understood any of its meanings or depth. I probably would've just been confused, or drawn to the painting with bright, neon colors.
I'm a firm believer that things really do happen for a reason, and so—without a single doubt in my body—I know that I've been blessed to have spent my first time at the museum with the best of companies.
Honestly, there's not much to say aside from recounting what we did in chronological order, and I don't think that would interest any of you very much. I'll let the photos do the talking themselves, most of which were taken while we were walking, so please don't wonder why it's almost always just Isabella or I's back facing the camera.
With that said, if you're ever planning to visit the area, I recommend checking out James Turrell's Breathing Light show. It was such a trippy experience—my favorite exhibit by far.
The Urban Lights right outside the museum is also a must-see. I've seen it plenty of times in videos and movies, so it was a little weird to be standing there myself, but in a good way, of course.
Let me know in the comments section below if you've ever gone to LACMA before, or if you plan on going!
