The most underrated feature of LA would have to be the nature and finding it is a lot closer than you think. I enjoy going to any green space to clear my mind after a long hard week at work. I know my husband fantasizes about living in the countryside, but to be honest I think he’d be tired of it very fast. If we lived in the countryside, would we seek solace (or fun) in the city if country life got monotonous? For me, I like to think finding a piece of nature in the city is a treat.
Some green and blues I came across the blogosphere:
John’s Space – featuring the most gorgeous lilacs!
Slow Shutter Speed – A beautiful ocean drive from San Jose to Pacific Grove.
Leya – A beautiful collection of greens and blues.
My Camera and I – Another beautiful collection featuring this lake.
Bulldog travels – shares photos from the Golden Gate Park Botanical Gardens. I haven’t been to that place in years. I loved how that city is so bikeable and walkable — although incredibly expensive!
P.A. Moed – Check out that mural! It’s stunning! Very Narnia like!
The Showers of Blessings – A very interesting history of peacocks in the San Gabriel area. Since I live in LA it explains some of the street names.
Bend Branches – beautiful sky shots!
