For my last day in Los Angeles, I was on the hunt to find the best street art to take photos with!
Celebrating the New Year in Los Angeles
If you’ve checked out my previous posts about my trip to Disneyland and the Rose Bowl, you know that I celebrated the New Year in Los Angeles. Luckily, I was traveling from Northern California, so a quick trip down south was no problem at all.
I couldn’t leave L.A. without going on a mini photoshoot, so I went searching for some great street art that I’ve seen some of my favorite L.A. bloggers take photos at.
Finding The Best Street Art
Before we went driving through the streets of L.A., I had to figure out where some great photo locations were. I couldn’t remember the names and locations of the street art I had seen in some of my favorite bloggers photos…so, of course, I had to hit up Google.
Luckily, I was able to find a great list of “Instagram-worthy” street art spots throughout Los Angeles, from Los Angeles Racked. I went through the list and picked out the art that I liked the most and also matched well with the outfit I was planning to take pictures in.
After choosing my favorite options, I tried to pick 2-3 locations we could visit in one day that were in the same area. I ended up choosing locations that were about 5 minutes away from each other.
I definitely encourage others to take this approach so you can maximize your time and be able to visit as many locations as possible. This is a great tip for not only if you’re trying to take street art photos, but with visiting attractions/site-seeing in general.
Once a list was put together, I got the addresses and we were ready to go!
The first stop on the street art photoshoot tour was St. Regis Wine & Liquor. On the side of the building is a beautiful set of angel wings drawn by Colette Miller. Colette Miller created this art as part of her Global Angel Wings Project, which was created in 2012 “to remind humanity that we are the Angels of this Earth”.
I was most excited about this one! I was wearing a purple skirt that day and thought the background matched with my outfit.

“Made In LA”
Next stop on the list was Cisco Home Melrose for the Made In LA art.
I wasn’t planning on taking any more pictures of myself after the first location. So, I had switched into leggings and sneakers for the car ride back home. But, the boyfriend convinced me to get in some of the pictures.
This really inspired me to want to seek out amazing art local to me. I love being inspired by the art around me. I’ll definitely be keeping my eyes open to art in my community.
