Living in Los Angeles, it’s hard to not take notice of the abundance of nature that surrounds you just outside your front door. Whether you’re strolling through Pasadena, walking along the beach in Santa Monica, or winding through the hills of Hollywood, each neighborhood has its own personality when it comes to plant life, leaving no shortage of inspiration for a designer or photographer. Growing up in this city, it’s been a subject I find myself turning my lens to again and again.
More so than just the plant life, I’m drawn to the way it’s juxtaposed with the city’s iconic architecture (one look at my Instagram feed will show you just what I mean). And with a lifetime spent navigating this city’s sprawling streets, it’s safe to say I’ve amassed quite a collection of plant photos. Depending on my mood, they’ll find themselves circulating as the backgrounds on my cell phone, and then it dawned on me that others may enjoy them for just the same reason. Today I’m sharing some of my favorite flora photos from the past year that you can save, set as your wallpaper, and get your dose of Los Angeles, wherever you may be.
