Right in the middle of downtown LA is this really unique and cool hotel called the Figueroa. It’s worth a visit if you ever make it downtown!

It’s a poor-man’s Times Square… LA’s attempt to make a cool hip place outside of the Staples center is the Nokia Blade Runner-esque montage of crass commercialism… It seems like a very strange place to me – it was pretty empty when I was there.
The LA nights tend to get a little cool, so there is nothing like an open pit fire to take the chill away. This is the hotel I stayed at in LA called the Custom Hotel (Stuck in Custom Hotel? Too easy!). I found it on this cool new boutique hotel site called TabletHotels.com. The site has the tagline “Hotels for Global Nomads”;, and aren’t we all?
It’s right by LAX and surprisingly inexpensive. They have this trendy club and bar (upstairs there) by the pool…
This is part of the old Union Pacific complex in Sacramento, California. They had a bunch of old trains there and I kept running into old crotchety engineers in overalls that didn’t like the look of me our my new-fangled camera.
This was taken in North Beach, the Italian section of San Francisco. I thought this cool corner spot was a lot like a smaller version of the Flatiron building in New York. That reminds me… I have a cool shot of that I need to find and upload. I didn’t stop in this cafe below… but it looked like a nice place to hang out.
