This week I took to the streets with a new friend of mine, Jonathan Ochoa, known as @sttephen on instagram. The two of us have been itching to expand our portrait photography, so decided their was no better way than to lurk the grittier side of DTLA and capture the true native angelino’s. I feel ashamed of myself for being afraid of these less fortunate people for so long, because the truth is that each of them have a story to tell. They each have a reason for being where they are in life right now and you can see glimpses of those stories in their eyes.
Although our adventure was an eye opening experience, @sttephen and I could’t resist getting back to our roots by exercising our creativity throughout the city, and climbing some roofs.
