Street Scenes: Unwrapped Oscar Hollywood

On my recent trip to Los Angeles I spent some time on Hollywood Boulevard updating my photography files for the agencies I submit stock photography to. Just a week before the Academy Awards preparation had begun outside the Kodak Theatre for the Red Carpet event.

I always seem to travel to Los Angeles right around Oscar time. It’s the tale end of the long winter in the Northeast and a desperate need to see the sun and catch up with old friends who migrated from New York years ago brings me back most years. Nothing shakes off the winter blahs like good company and ocean air.

Where do you go when you need to escape and rejuvenate? Are you able to do this closer to home?

Escape and rejuvenate during the long, brutal, winter is a total necessity in Chicago. Besides stops by places with a tropical cuisine and vibe like Yassa, I go through my travel pix and await the end of March, when I officially start traveling again, mostly to warm, sunny countries.

Haven't been to LA is a long time. I should consider vacationing in sunny California during the long Canadian winters :)

I didn't really think of LA as a holiday destination but I can identify with the need for spring sunshine!
