Since I was driving down to the airport at LAX to drop off my parents I decided to make an evening
of it and drive around taking some pictures.

My first stop was Venice beach. It certainly has a different vibe at night.
I especially enjoyed taking pictures of bicyclists going by with led's in their spokes
as the long exposures made for some interesting shots.

Even the Murals and graffiti take on a different appearance at night.

Next I headed down towards an inlet.

Here I spotted this Pelican.


and while taking the pelicans picture I was lucky enough to spot a night Heron.

I then headed towards downtown Los Angeles, hoping to get a skyline shot.

I worked my way through the garment district ans wound up in some sketchy neighborhood.

Right after I took the picture at the top of the post several police cars came speeding past and then
were questioning someone just up ahead. I also became aware of huge numbers of homeless people
sleeping on the sidewalk on the numerous side streets, so that was enough for one night,
I made my way back to the freeway and headed home.
