monday melbourne roundup - the LA - new york and philly edition

Where do I even start? I have to get something on paper so I can just move on. Restaurants will flow through and be documented that way so they wont turn up here. Guess I'll post a bit about the galleries, sights and films I saw while I was away.

Los Angeles

Love the place more than life itself. Some selected stills:

Films

Black Swan 5/5
(my second 5/5 for the year)

Completely mind blowing.


Knight and Day

I didn’t hate this. I was completely surprised. 3/5.


I ate some great food while I was away. Its really hard to find good vegan food! Most vegan places are mock meat and it makes me mental. I ended up subsisting a lot on falafel sandwiches and burritos, but did manage to make it (and document) quite a few places. The torrent of posting will start tomorrow!

Hope you enjoyed some of my photos. Xo.

  1. Oh, happy happy! One of my favourite dresses came from a store at Venice Beach - I think I found one of the only non-tacky garments :P Funnily enough I didn't love LA when I visited in 2007, but I'm prepared to give it another go ;)

  2. Great photos! I love the picture of the invisible building. I do love a good invisible/glass building. So cheesy. So fantastic.
