A Clear Day

Photo taken by me


After the recent rain, Saturday was a clear and sunny day providing a great opportunity to take a clear photo of the snow covered mountain. This photo was taken in Downtown Santa Ana with the view of the Downtown Orange County water tower. However, tomorrow (Sunday) appears to be the heaviest of the rain, thus far, with an anticipation of around 1 to 2 inches of rain. Stay dry out there!

My Visit to California Plaza in DTLA

Walk way in California Plaza in DTLA

By: Chad Kim

I moved to DTLA not that long ago. A little over one month to be precise. Even though I have lived here, and gotten to visit the urban landscape multiple times prior to my move, I still find new places to explore. In this piece, I describe my visit to California Plaza along with photos I got to take along my visit. 

California Plaza is a multilevel plaza perched atop at a higher elevation compared to when I made my entry to this plaza. Before making the journey up here, I had to use an escalator located at the north-west corner of 4th and Olive.

It was an unusually warm Sunday, and I went to DTLA to meet up with my friend to hang out and also take a look at the various DTLA development projects that are going on right now. I met him up at Union Station.

We decided to visit the Bolsa Chica Wetlands, but beforehand, made an impromptu visit to the Bolsa Chica State Beach in Sunset Beach in Orange County. Once parked, and made our way to the beach, I immediately took a picture which shows the beach and skyline of Downtown Long Beach.
