Abbott Kinney

Matt and I recently drove to the Los Angeles area for friends Jamie & Justin's wedding in nearby Thousand Oaks. Due to work commitments, we were only able to get away for two days, so you'd better believe we packed all we could into that time! Though the trip involved a lot of driving (and the typical traffic jams), our 16 hours spent in LA proper were filled with good friends, incredible food, and memorable hangouts. Here are a few shots from my breakfast and walkabout on Abbott Kinney in Venice Beach with two astronomically talented pals, Phil and Sera. The densely-packed street art in this area is some of my favorite of anywhere I've visited!

Love the alleyway at Another Kind of Sunrise...

And a bit of brunch at Gjelina...

Next up, mountain-top wedding photos!
