Cut for photos of Los Angeles, flowers, my hair, etc. I wanted to show you more of what LA really looks like, not just the pretty stuff. It ended up mostly pretty anyway.

LA palms night

Outside my workplace, at night.

I cut and dyed my hair. In case you hadn't heard. This was taken before a reading I did at a library in Redondo Beach with Sherwood, Sofia Samatar, and Stephen Blackmoore. It was lots of fun. Dress from India, shoes from Paris.

The next set of photos are from the Japanese neighborhood near me. The clusters of shops with parking lots in front are called "strip malls," and are extremely common in LA.

LA Tomato bank

The next set are flowers seen walking around my neighborhood. Reds are brighter than blood in the summer sun. The photos never quite capture the intensity of the colors.

LA yellow flowers

Yes! On the geraniums! Amazingly bright.

That's a wonderful dress and totally suits you. I couldn't figure out why I kept looking at your shoes, though. I don't care about shoes. I guess if they're from Paris maybe I do.

That red, red rose amongst the hot-climate leaves is a great shot.

They're very pretty shoes! Pretty enough to attract even a non-shoe-person.

i really covet your dress. and the haircut is a+++ and suits you a lot! but how is this photo at night when there's sun?

Now I'm hungry.

(But also: nice dress, and good pictures, particularly that last one. Got some vivid color and some good angles into it.)

Your hair is great!

And don't most cities in the US have strip malls? You guys may have more of them than a lot of the rest of us though ;)

The LA strip mall shots made me nostalgic for LA. Sad. (Not so much the strip malls themselves but the shops therein. Don't see a lot of that in Iowa...)

The rest of the pics were very nice. Very LA. And the dress looks very nice.

Oh, I love the photo of the palm trees in particular.

And hey, you have Beard Papa! There's one near my department's building, but I somehow never realized it was a chain.

The red do jump out in these photos, though!

I wish I could have been at that reading.

I covet your dress, and your new hair color is gorgeous.
