Disney Hall and the Getty Center

POST #    680

Today, the skies cleared up over Los Angeles and Justin and I got some sightseeing in. We went to the Walt Disney Concert Hall and the J. Paul Getty Museum.

Disney Hall is a Frank Gehry designed building (who else would design something like that?) and was absolutely beautiful. I took a bunch of photos of it, which I'll put up when I return home. Not everyone loves Gehry's architecture, but if you saw Disney up close, it's hard not to appreciate it.

The Getty Museum was also beautiful. Getty was designed by Richard Meier, but I don't think the buildings were quite as nice as Disney Hall. Getty's views were amazing though, with its location in the Santa Monica Mountains, one can see the Pacific Ocean, the San Gabriel Mountains, and the city of Los Angeles. The Getty Museum also has some magnificent gardens that the public can walk around in as well.

Taking in these two sites was not a bad way to wrap up my trip to Los Angeles.

there are many people on livejournal that are very upset with you getting so much credit for making their crossing sign stunt so popular.

wow, anonymous - that's ridiculous. and pathetic. if someone wants to claim credit, they should step up. or maybe they should have taken a picture and published it on their blog?

Hey. You know what's funny, Tien? My friend Alex, that I asked to advise on a few places to go out in LA, works for Frank Gehry. That's his boss! I was surprised to see that comment.
Sorry about the rain, but ya, I have to say, that Michelle is nice. My type also.Yummy. Good energy, comes through in the photo of the whole team. What else happened to you on your trip? What did you think about?
The sign and all, screw them, It's not your job to hide truth!
Bon Voyeuage!
