Through the Lens: photos from November


Oh November, we hardly knew you.

December marks the beginning of the end of a lot of things, including this semester. The homestretch!

Before we get into what December holds, let’s take one last look back at November in photos. Despite my sometimes frazzled state of mind, I did manage to get in a few breathers—including a hike through gorgeous Corral Canyon near the coast. We also camped for a night on a coastal bluff that overlooked the Pacific.

John and I also spent an entire Saturday walking around DTLA, particularly to check out the amazing architecture and awesome food. Just below is the famous Bradbury building, which has made cameos in tons of movies, including Blade Runner and 500 Days of Summer.

We also visited Grand Central Market (pictured above) for lunch. We had the best pastrami sandwich of all time at Wexler’s deli. So good.

Los Angeles, I’m yours.

This month, I’m focusing my energy on, oh just about everything. Final projects, employment for the spring, my upcoming trip home for Christmas (!) and… a few other things I’m forgetting.

What are you getting into in December? Are you already planning for the new year?

  1. Those are all beautiful photos, my favourite is the picture of the stairwell.

  2. Wow, I’ve lived in LA for almost six years now and have barely explored downtown. I didn’t know there were so many cool things to see!

      Oh my gosh, you need to visit – especially the Arts District! I didn’t even know downtown was a thing before I moved here, haha. Now there are parts of it that I really love.

  3. Great photos, as always. I’m wrapping up the semester this week and then workin’ hard on my freelance stuff. I’m ready for a break from school.

  4. Awesome photos Cassie 🙂 Hope all your plans align this holiday season! Take Care -Iva

  5. wonderful photos — they make me miss home! 🙂

  6. Holy crap you did a lot of stuff in November…

    • Cassie Paton says:

      I guess I did! So much of these were taken on the same days. Nothing like a wide-open Saturday afternoon to do some ‘splorin’. 🙂
