American Life

Researching into some West Coast positioned internships this week reminded me of my road trip around California a few years ago. We started in Nevada and did a night in Vegas; possibly the most surreal night of my life..our hotel had a rollercoaster in it. We then went down to Arizona to see the Grand Canyon, and then into California to do Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Carmel, Redondo Bay, Hollywood, LA & Anaheim. Amazing scenery, beautiful sunshine and some great photo opportunities.

The Hollywood Hills



On the last day of our trip we visited Redondo Bay, where some of the OC was filmed. We saw the Bait Shop, the pier and the café!

These are really nice photographers. I've seen so many photos of that Hollywood sign, but I must say, this is one the best, because you so far from it, but you can still recognise what it says!
