Still here... still loving it.
More than loving it, actually.
We took an architectural tour ran by a really nice chap called Robert Imber, so totally passionate about architecture and so in love with this city that it was a joy to listen to him. We spent the morning in his company and he was very knowledgeable, if you're ever in the neighbourhood I would highly recommend taking his tour.

(Edris house, 1954, designed by E Stewart Williams)
(Kaufmann house, 1954, designed by Richard Neutra)
(432 Hermosa - the Dinah Shore house, now owned by Leonardo di Caprio, 1964, designed by Donald Wexler)
These are just a few of the many many many houses we were told about and drove by. Truly amazing.
This morning while Mr M was on his daily run I borrowed a bike from the hotel and drove around the neighbourhoods of Indian Canyon and Twin Palms.
I might never leave this place. It's just too beautiful.
(That was after working out how to ride a bike with no breaks, just some weird back-pedalling action... interesting few early manoeuvres... just saying)
Everywhere I looked there was something to photograph... I kept saying to myself... 'That one, that is the one'... and then I turned the corner and there was something else that caught my eyes...
... a detail.. or a whole house...
I can't wait to go out tomorrow morning and make sure I don't miss a thing.
