If you live in Los Angeles, then surely you’ve seen the fantastic art installation that stands just outside of LACMA on Wilshire Blvd. It’s a sculpture called Urban Light that comprised of 200 vintage Southern California lampposts and it is breathtaking. Ever since the piece went up, I — as well as many others — have been in complete awe of it.
A couple of nights ago I set out late in the evening to take some photos there and I enlisted the help of my friend James, as well as my lovely husband, Chris. James was to be my model, and Chris was set to document the photo shoot with a Flip video camera. The video that follows is what Chris came up with. I think it’s pretty neat, so please check it out!
After watching the video, keep scrolling for my favorite images from the shoot.
I should probably point out that this piece is a work of art and shouldn’t be climbed on in the manner that we did. Unfortunately we weren’t thinking about that late at night (I blame a lack of sleep and just my own pure stupidity) and we got a tongue-lashing from a guard as a result. And rightly so! So, what I mean to say is, don’t do what we did. That being said, we did what we did and I didn’t want the photos to go to waste because then our wrongful act of climbing would have been for naught.
