Delighted to have my employers paying the airfare to send me to LA for a training course. Arriving evening of Tues Apr 2, departing early Sun Apr 7. Training all Thurs, up to 2 pm Friday, most likely in a hotel near LAX, specific still TBD. I will rent a car for the other time.
My grandmom was a California girl, but it's been more than 20 years since my last trip there. I want to bring my camera gear; landscape photography is a passion. I've been exploring this forum a bit, got a few ideas for some short rides, would love your expert input.
I saw a thread that talked Palos Verdes; seems easily drivable, and looks to be a good place for some great spring photography. I have to be up in Woodland Hills on the Wednesday & Saturday, not sure if there's anything near there I should make a point of getting to. I don't mind the highway driving, and am willing to drive for up to an hour out if you think it's interesting. I want to try to get to Japantown, too; I remember it fondly from that last trip.
Any and all suggestions entertained, thanks in advance.
