Los Angeles and Irvine 2014

at the end of August and beginning of September we took a trip to La La land to meet some friends.
2014 9
the trip starts here, in Santa Monica
2014 9
specifically the Santa Monica Pier
2014 9
this is what LA is like
2014 9
a bit crazy
2014 9
for this leg of the trip our hosts were Seb and Kat
2014 9
seb and i used to work at Crytek in Frankfurt, Germany
2014 9
we made our way to Venice beach
2014 9
where i ran out of film
2014 9
hence no photos of Muscle beach…but this street
2014 9
and Isa in my fav clothing store All Saints
2014 9
that night we met Nico and Sophie who had just moved to LA and had a new person in their life…Lucas
2014 9
Nico and I worked at Capcom in Vancouver, Canada
2014 9
the next morning we said goodbye to Seb and Kat and headed to
2014 9
…Griffith Observatory…if you have seen Terminator 1…then you have seen this place. This is where Arnold is sent back in time.
2014 9
in front of the Hollywood sign…which you cannot see here
2014 9
here it is
2014 9
and this is downtown LA from GO
2014 9
we walked along Hollywood Bvd, but this is the only interesting thing on the street…
2014 9
met up with Chris and Jamie for lunch…after making them wait for an hour, sorry guys
2014 9
one of these is digital the other is analog…
2014 9
from here we started the second leg of our trip…
2014 9
…we drove to Irvine in Orange County
2014 9
to meet the Howls
2014 9
we got there in the evening and Kris was busy preparing some curry
2014 9
and Nat was busy speaking in German to Isa
2014 9
while Albert relaxed
2014 9
and i made Art
2014 9
Kris and I worked at Crytek in Germany
2014 9
these days he spends time making curry, going to the gym…and working on a small game called StarCraft
2014 9
we had a great dinner
2014 9
the next day we visited Blizzard and then in the evening walked along Laguna Beach
2014 9
got up the next day to this
2014 9
and this
2014 9
said goodbye to Kris, Nat and Geoff…more on Geoff in a later post
2014 9
last day…we drove back to LA to visit the Warner Bros studio
2014 9
there was a Batman exhibition
2014 9
the hero that we need but not the one we want
2014 9
second part of the exhibition where they have all his rides on display
2014 9
some of the props used in various films
2014 9
and that was that.

Its easy to hate on LA, but that would be unfair. Its not the cleanest or nicest and you need to drive a LOT. But it has a certain energy very similar to Bombay. Its crazy…in a good way.
