Impressions of Santa Monica Part 1

Santa Monica. The song with the same name by Savage Garden always rings in my ears when I hear the name of this sunshine beach.


Impressions of masterpieces at Getty Museum

Getty Center is part of the J. Paul Getty Museum, where it displayed some of the finest pieces of art. One of the most recognizable collections would be Irises (1889) by Vincent van Gogh.

It is hard for layman like me to appreciate art, so we use auction or market value to indicate the appreciated value of art :). Irises is worth USD105 million. There were many tourists walked pass this masterpiece without realizing it.

If you are art lovers, Getty Center will be a pilgrimage site in North America.

Impressions of portraiture at Getty Center

There are several galleries in the J. Paul Getty Museum. Good news to tourists who like photography is that the museum allows non-flash photography. The second good news is that the West Pavilion is dedicated as the Center of Photographs.


Impressions of Farmers Market @ Los Angeles

I decided to go to this market when I read about it on the plane to Los Angeles.

Impressions of Little Mexico at Los Angeles

Los Angeles down town is kind of boring. Olvera Street is one of the more interesting streets in LA.
