In the past week, I wandered off to Los Angeles, mainly to take my girlfriend there for her first time, but also because I dig hanging out on the West Side. I used to live there, and while Austin is where I belong these days, LA’s everyday car scene can’t be beat.

For this journey, we were staying in the area where Santa Monica meets Venice. The car culture there is cool, as anyone that has ever watched a Petrolicious video will tell you, but I never put any thought into snapping pics of the random assortment you see around town.

This time, with my girlfriend tagging along, we stopped along the roads to snap some pics. Have some cars.

All pictures were taken on my Canon 1DX, with a 24-70mm f/2.8 II, and simple edits were done in Adobe Lightroom. More of my photography can be seen on my Instagram profile.
