The Last Year Of A Los Angeles Life

Tomorrow, I go to New York to start my freshman year at NYU, and, as such, my life in Los Angeles has more or less come to a close. I couldn't think of a better city to grow up in, and no matter how great another city may be, I know that Los Angeles will always be my favorite. I started taking these photos the day after I posted my last Los Angeles photo thread, and I finished yesterday. I hope you enjoy!

Congratulations, young man. I think you have captured the almost boundless diversity of L. A. better than almost anyone I know has. You could put these photos between binders, mingled with some text, and have a successful book on your hands.

Enjoy college. There will never be a freer, happier time in your life than your years as an undergraduate - endless opportunities, but still not an oppressing load of responsibilities. Enjoy New York, too, although after a year, the vile weather may have you contemplating a transfer to UCLA or USC.

IMG 3226 : Where are those glass towers never seen them before.

Also 3768 and 3769 Interesting vantage point that somehow misses the density of Hollywood and the areas just west of DT. From that angle LA looks very suburban or "undense" with that big swath of green in the center right... Where was this taken from? I have never seen LA look like that before.

Great shots, I'm always jealous of your food budget. I could easily spend 3 grand a month on food trying out new places here in Southern CA.

Nice set. I remember how excited I was to go off to college my freshman year; that feeling left when those architecture all nighters started.

What's your major?

Thanks man! The glassy towers are The Vermont in Koreatown, and I took those two pictures in the Hollywood Hills.

Where in the HH? Can you give me the nearest intersection and if you have a shot from there looking more to the South please post when you have a chance. Downtown looks very diminutive from those two shots, not a negative just saying.

we are all in for many treats when you start shooting pics in NYC. You have spoiled us viewers with your great LA threads. Best of luck to you starting college. I'm sure you will love NYU, it's a fabulous school!

I'm honestly not sure where. I just went up a random street until I found a good view. The first shot I took, the one that's in portrait, is looking directly south.

AHHHH, I miss L.A. so mud when I see these pics. Welcome to to New York though. I can show you the ropes if need be.

Great scenes. Man, I remember my summer/fall flying from the nest off to college. Did your friends put on the faces of angst on purpose or just subconsciously? At least that's how I viewed them. Wishing you great fun and success in school in NYC.

Thanks man! I'm bummed too that this thread died so quickly but it's hard to be too disappointed considering the state of the photo forums in general.

Very nice and good luck in NYC. Just as my oldest son starts at UCLA in a couple weeks, I'll be down that way much more.
Lots of high tone food in this thread!
