Too early but it’s definitely a great blog find that I’m irresistibly itching to feature it. Here are Debra and Beth of Breathe Lighter. In pursuing to influence readers with healthier choices in life and their well-beings, this blog is often heavy on nature, travel histories, peaceful living and positive attitude. Every post has substance, that it’s not a wonder that its visitors are usually engaged to the discussions.Β  Comments-reading is high on this blog. My favorite post, however is a tamale demonstration. Just like so, don’t get too quick to jump, Breathe Lighter knows how to have fun.


Last Call…

    Holy Toledo! I can’t imagine what all it took (in addition to money) to put that boulder over the walkway! Really a great variety of images from around L.A. I’ve been there twice, but only the airport, heading somewhere else. Never an opportunity to visit the city. I’m pretty sure I would enjoy the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

    • rommel says:

      Ow, you gotta visit some time. A lot of people who has layovers, flight delays get to go to Venice, a top attraction. I’ll be posting about LACMA very soon.

  2. Lucid Gypsy says:

    Well worth a tweet! What a city Rommel, you’re doing a great job for tourismπŸ™‚

  3. themofman says:

    I like that shyline shot of LA. I’ve always wanted to do one of those. I have yet to get out there.

  4. Nice portfolio of shots on Greater L.A. I loved it while I lived there, but really hated the traffic. Great job!

  5. Well done Rommel! I particularly like that last shot of Disney Hall where you used the light to turn steel to gold — beautiful.

    These are some of my fav places in LA!πŸ™‚

  9. 7feetnorth says:

    This makes me actually want to visit LA someday. Love the birds eye shot of the traffic!

  10. Amy says:

    Thanks for the ride, Rommel! LA looks so cool through your lens.πŸ™‚

  11. Java Girl says:

    That night shot of L.A. is amazing. So amazing I have to put that on my “to do” list when I head out there next year (hopefully). Wow. What a view!!!

  12. premdev says:

    Woot! nice set of L.A. photos… and you know what, we’ve just stopped by Venice Beach and the canals and in Oxnard today. I remember you telling me you’re from that place…. now we ended in Lompoc for the night and will be heading to Solvang tomorrow. Phew!

  13. Bro, your photos gave justice to the name City of Angels. You showed the beautiful, even the dream-like , magical version of L.A. that nowadays get overshadowed by the negative stuff we see on t.v. Somehow, you reminded us of the golden age of Hollywood and what it is to dream. Thanks.

    • rommel says:

      Ow, IT. You read it like a book. LA definitely has many negative feedbacks besides travel woes like traffic and parking. There’s lots of crimes going on. Many areas are er? ghetto (sorry). At times, I feel soffucated being there, with the city, the crowd, the noise, etc. But, you really just know where to look and be.

  14. adinparadise says:

    Fantastic shots, Rommel. You seek out the best bits to photograph.πŸ™‚

  15. Solo says:

    When you coming too Minnesota?

  16. Sunshine says:

    What a great way you put this together…in collage form to get all the fab images that is now making me put a must-visit on my bucket list! Thanks for the inspiration.πŸ˜‰

    • rommel says:

      If you like to show so much without making it looks crowded, collage is your answer. I’m not fond of WP collage because you can control the arrangements. I’m sure it will improve.

  17. Madhu says:

    Oooh…..fabulous shots! That night view alone is enough to entice anyone to visit! The LA tourism board should be paying you RommelπŸ™‚

  18. Madhu says:

    And oh yes, loving the new lookπŸ™‚

  19. jackiebelle says:

    Southern California was where I was born and raised in the 1960’s. I don’t like how built it is is now BUT you brought back the magic with your incredible photos. What pattern, texture, color and beauty you have captured.

    • rommel says:

      Thank you for the visit and compliments, jackiebelle. I’m afraid this city is not as pleasing as it was. You really gotta know the right places to appreciate it.

  20. libertatemamo says:

    Fabulous photo essay of LA!! For some reasons I’ve been totally missing your posts? Glad to be catching up again!

  21. […] weekend in Las Vegas was short and bitter, and well, “sweet”. We headed to the City of Angels to drop one of us and headed home all the just next […]

  22. RDoug says:

    Some great sights you managed to capture in and around L.A. Most of those shots are of places I’ve never been.

Don't be shy to say hi.
