New Photos: Dockweiler Beach, Los Angeles

After being quarantined for 3 weeks straight, I thought I get some air and take a stroll at the beach.

My original plan was to hit up Playa Del Rey, where I could take some photos with my new drone. Given that it was a Sunday, it was difficult to find parking. As I continued to cruise through Vista Del Mar (with the most gorgeous view, even more beautiful during sunset hours), I found myself at the Dockweiler Beach. Parking was $13 right in front of the beach. It was pretty packed at the beach but plenty beach for everyone to enjoy haha. Though I couldn’t take pictures with my drone, I enjoyed the view just as much. Above are few of the pictures I took. It felt so good to take a break, feeling the wind brush across my skin, feet dug in the stand, and the sound of the waves crashing into each other. Needless to say, it was a mini getaway from this new of quarantine and isolation.

Please feel free to check out my photo gallery to join me on both my past and future my adventures.

June Monthly Pick Up


Just purchased a few books at my local book store in Koreatown, Los Angeles not too long ago in June of last month.

Found some great finds related to music, photography, and law (for preparation as I have hopes of venturing into the legal field sometime in the far future, but will save that discussion for another time.)

I am currently catching up in my reading and have started a new insightful book The Gift by Lewis Hyde.
So far, it has helped me recognize the importance creativity & how to nurture it so that we can continue to grow ourselves as an artist and a person of society.
Will definitely touch base as I continue to read on & of course write a book review at the end once I am finished.

Anyhow, plenty has happened in the past few days that made only catapulted me to be making the real (long overdue) moves I should’ve been making years ago for my music career.
I have written a few pieces that I can’t wait to share with ya’ll & will be collaborated with other artists very soon in the near future. Can’t wait to keep ya’ll updated. Here’s to new beginnings.

Update: Photo Gallery

Hi Ya’ll, not too long ago I was going through my old photos (from years ago) & found some that I added to my collection.
I remember when I first realized my love for photography and my teachers/ friends recognized the ‘talent’ or ‘eye’ I had for it– whatever that may mean. I never really pushed for it or pursued it only because I never saw it in me to make a sustainable career for it. Instead, I delved into my school books & work– neglecting all my passions & interests to simply get my degree & move out home. That didn’t stop me from taking photographs, however, wherever I went as a way to escape my reality even if for a short moment. It was also years later when I realized my love for filming & editing too. That’s when I created my #VlogDiaries Series. Though people may not really see it as much, until this day, those videos mean everything to me because of the hard work, effort, and thought I put into each of them. To me, those videos are not to “show off” or even ‘get views’ but a way for myself to reminisce and record my journey of life. As I continue to travel more, I plan to create more videos because I would love to share them with you and the world.

If you are interested, please feel free to check out my photo gallery here.

stay safe ya’ll & much love x Lo

Photography Update ~

Went on my first road trip for 18 hours with some friends to Washington and Portland last month and it was amazing. Thought I’d capture some moment and share them with ya’ll. Just added new photos to my photography collection, check em out here for more old and recent photos.

Just thought I’d drop in and leave some pictures for ya’ll to check out for those who haven’t yet checked out my Photography page, especially for those looking for inspiration. I know for me, at least, I haven’t found much photography inspiration maybe since my mind’s kinda been occupied with work and all, but I guess this is just a reminder for myself and for others to not lose that inspiration/ creative spark. For me it’s been an on-and-off relationship between me and art.. but I definitely plan to become more consistent especially for 2019. Really hone in on my talents, passions, and creativity. When I was 18, I decided to create a VSCO account where I can store my collections of photos throughout the years. For me, growing up, photography was more than just photos, but a way of expression, a way to capture a particular moment in a particular mood.. if that makes any sense. Anyway, I hope this could better convey what I am trying to see. Feel free to check out my VSCO account here for more pictures, this particular series is called the “Three-Piece Series”.
Hope to share more with ya’ll very soon, as I am planning a big road trip vacay very soon.
Peace & Love,

Lo ❦

Photography Update ~

My friends and I visited Santa Barbara not too long ago, and what other way to save these memories as keepsakes in the form of photos?

We spontaneously decided to drive out to Santa Barbara 11pm at night (I know, I am starting to realize I live for moments like this). We arrived within 1-1.5 hours (LA in all its beauty without the traffic), which mind you is about 100 miles out of LA.

When we arrived we got something to eat, explored what we can of SB late at night, and knocked out in the car. A couple hours later and we woke up just before the sun rise.

Life’s too short to miss out on these moments.
