Olvera Street, 10 0n 10

For my daughter’s anthropology class, she needed to go to a cultural enclave in LA and observe the sights and food.  She asked if Andy and I would like to join her and of course we said yes! If I had known college homework was so much fun, I would not have dropped out. We went down to Olvera Street, one of the oldest streets in Los Angeles. It has been established as a historic landmark since 1953.  We went down in the morning so that the street would not be quite as full.

It was early in the morning so the street was just starting to open up.

While some of the stores and carts were still closed.

We didn’t mind.  We were able to roam slowly through the street, enjoying each other.

I sometimes forget that my city is a major destination for tourists.  I love that people want to come see our city and I hope they see the beauty I see.

We stopped at our favorite spot for some taquitos.

We also went into the Avila Adobe, the oldest standing residence in Los Angeles.  It is now a museum and cultural landmark.

It was a fun day with my girl and my man.  We love our time spent together.

  1. So wonderful! I especially love the tones you get with this film. That interior shot is just stunning. And of course your family is beautiful! 🙂

    1. Thank you! I really liked that one too. I was surprised it can out. Hand held Hassy in low light can be tricky.

  2. I just think its so awesome that she wants to hang out with mom and dad still! I love the pictures of your day and I think it’s rather nice you went early and it was nice and spacious. I love the dad/daughter pix and the shadow against the closed cart was super cool too.

Thank you for your kind words.
