I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. i make mistakes, i am out of control and at times hard to handle. but if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. - marilyn monroe 📷 by di_the _hunter #la #dtla #valentinesday #valentineday #lovequotes #loveislove #loveisintheair #losangeles

Los angeles in particular is strongly predisposed to accumulation of smog, because of peculiarities of its geography and weather patterns. los angeles is situated in a flat basin with ocean on one side and mountain ranges on three sides. 📷 by @zombiago_photography #la #laca #losangeles #losangelescalifornia #dtla #dtlaphotography #laphotography #smoggycity

Considering that the original hollywoodland sign was only intended to be an advertisement for a real estate development, it was very expensive. the construction cost of the sign was around $21,000, which is roughly the equivalent of $250,000 in 2013 dollars. 📷 by @piotmar #la #hollywood #hollywoodsign #hollywooddreams #laca #lacalifornia #california #californialiving #californiaadventures #californiaadventure
