“I’m nobody, who are you?”
Emily Dickinson 
The beauty of living in Los Angeles is that it’s easy to get lost in the crowd.  For some, this may be awkward and unwanted, but for me, I love the way this city allows me to be no one.  You can literally walk down the streets of LA, in shocking pink hair and yellow cowboy boots and no one would blink an eye.  It is as if this city has seen it all, and has become desensitized to any shock factor.

In these photos, I feel as if I have become lost in the graffiti. Maybe in some ways, living in Los Angeles is similar to this graffiti- intense, colorful, and beautiful.  It is so full of life that it is easy to become absorbed by its complexity.  And I absolutely love it.
