Fall

October 09, 2015  •  8 Comments

It was our last summer weekend, also the last weekend with my in laws in town before them heading back to Brazil. My daughter asked me to go to the park so that's where we went.

It was a warm and sunny day but we could see signs that Fall is just around the corner.

The last oficial picture of the season, hubby was away on a business trip overseas

 

One week after they left, my sister in law arrived, to spend a few days with the kids. On our only weekend together we decided to go to Los Angeles.

We started at the Griffith Observatory with beautiful night views of the City of Angels. We watched a show called Centered in the Universe at the Samuel Oschin Planetarium but skipped the line for the telescope, which was about 40 minutes wait. 

 

Next day we went to The Getty. Since the museum is very big and we had different plans for the afternoon, each one of us could pick one part of the museum to visit. I went for the photography but they only had one exhibition called Animalia. My son was disappointed that they don't have a single dinosaur and didn't pick anything to see, was just following along like his dad. My daughter wanted to go to the Drawings & Paintings.

Here is the artist in her creative process

 

There should be something really interesting about that wall

 

She spent a lot of time in there, wrote numbers from 1 to 100 split in 10's, here she was at the 80's

 

Then she wrote names and emoticons :-)

 

Outside, the museum gardens is gorgeous, full of life and colors!

 

And my son finally found a nice area to visit: the museum shop! 

 

From the museum we went straight to Santa Monica Pier, always very busy and so alive!

My daughter saw the ferris wheel and begged for a ride.

Awww, the golden hour!

 

And to finish we spent our last weekend day at the Universal Studios where we met friends that are also visiting from Brazil and together we had a lot of fun!

Here I am, carrying my heavy camera bag all day long but taking pictures and selfies with my iPhone! (All edited in Instagram)

Wonderful images. I love your observatory and museum shots, especially your daughter in her creative endeavors. The ferris wheel is great too!

Looks like a grand end to the summer! I adore that first shot of your daughter, sometimes their lack of cooperation can yield a winner :) And I simply love the perspective you got from the ferris wheel, I've shot it from below before, but I'm going to have go for a ride on my next visit there!
