Intermission: The LA Tourist

Having my sister visit LA from Down Under is such a treat. It reminds me of how much I value time with my family, and of that irreplaceable bond between siblings.

It’s also a wonderful excuse to act like a tourist in my newly adopted home base.

I dedicate this post to my sis, Katya.

Below are some of our fun moments photographed around LA with either the Nikon 35mm or Smartphone.

  1. Beautiful shots and wonderful memories I’m sure Marina! My sister and I also live apart from each other (NZ and Oz so a little closer than you) but I understand how wonderful it is to be together again. Hope you had a great time while she visited :)

  2. What a wonderful post Marina. Isn’t it great when a relative visits and you get to share all the sights. My brother visited Tokyo on business when I lived there and showing him around was like seeing it all again for the first time.
    I so glad you’re having this time together. :-)
