After a morning meeting last week in Downtown Los Angeles, I made a quick trip over to the Grand Central Market for some lunch. I decided to try out a new Leica Q that I have the pleasure of using for the day. I didn't get much, but the photos I got made me want to shoot quite a few hundred (or million) more with this little camera.
Crossing Broadway in DTLA en route to the Grand Central Market. I love how this part of the city looks so much like New York. Also, I love the KRKO tower in the background giving it character.
Grand Central Market was packed on a hot LA day. Like a lot of cities, LA has revived this very old institution with many modern flares. The food here is fantastic with many vegan options for me.
Even though it was a hot summer day, I found a free seat at the counter at Ramen Hood and ordered this wonderful hot ramen. I had heard so muh about this place with the vegan ramen that I had to give it a try, and it was absolutely what I needed at that moment. This was the "OG Ramen" topped with a vegan egg. I don't want to start sounding like a commercial, but if you're visting DTLA and can find a free seat, go to Ramen Hood.
Leaving the market. I am a photograper with a huge appreciation for street photography, as well as the lifestyle and portraits you can see on my portfolio site. I wouldn't put myself in the category of street photographer just yet. I feel that is a space one has to earn. Still, with this small Leica Q I might have to think about putting in more time.
