at The Getty with fellow PB-er!

by Jacki July. 25, 2015 859 views

The J. Paul Getty Trust is the world's largest cultural and philanthropic organization dedicated to the visual arts. 16,000 tons of travertine from Bagni di Tivoli, Italy make up this incredible complex designed by Richard Meier sitting on a hilltop in the Santa Monica Mountains. From there, you can take in the disparate aspects of Los Angeles's landscape??the Pacific Ocean, the San Gabriel Mountains, and the vast street??grid of the city.

Jay (lookwhatisaw) was in Los Angeles from Germany, for the THIRD time! ALWAYS a pleasure to hang out with him… this time a beautiful afternoon at my favorite LA destination, The Getty Center!

THE most incredible architecture… LOVE it… spent 4+ hours and only went in one gallery! Who needs “art” when the location IS art!

Are these the coolest “trellis's” or what?! In the winter they are even more spectacular… it's getting a little too hot and dry for bougainvillea to be at it's prime, although it basically grows like a weed year round. ;-)

Overlooking Westwood… downtown Los Angeles and the San Gabriel mountains are off on the left, ocean off on the right.
