On May 17 from 6-9 PM, catch sunset over the Getty gardens as well as the groovy vibe of Jonathan Wilson‘s raspy vocals, spiraling progressions, and funky & folky beats. Whether you are or are not going to make San Francisco’s Outside Lands, the first installation of the museum’s music series, Saturdays off the 405, is a picturesque opportunity to see one of the music festival’s performers in Los Angeles.
Three years ago, I started writing the Being Breezie tumblr with a post about the “Hollywood Issue” of Vanity Fair. Three years later, I am once again looking forward to Annie Liebovitz’s Oscar-nom-filled photo shoot in the magazine’s March 2014 issue. Hopefully there will be more writing to come about the photography, the magazine, and the Oscars in the near future!
Happy Carnival, everyone!!
The Huntington Library purchased the Ernest Marquez Collection of 4,600 images of Santa Monica in the 1870s to the 1950s. “This photo archive was amassed over a 50-year period by a descendent of Mexican land grantees who owned the 6,000-acre Rancho Boca de Santa Monica or present-day Rustic and Santa Monica Canyons, Pacific Palisades, and portions of the city of Santa Monica,” said Jennifer A. Watts, curator of photographs at The Huntington.
The Southern Pacific Railroad, built through Rancho Boca, was completed on the last day of 1887 (and via the Long Warf in 1893), and the images depict the rustic beachside ranches and tent settlements welcoming newcomers from across the country and bourgeoning into a buzzing costal city.
The Getty Images Lean In Collection is “a library of images devoted to the powerful depiction of women, girls and the people who support them.” The empowering images show women of different backgrounds and ethnicities in leadership roles in contemporary personal and professional spheres. The images are vivid and inspiring.
I love the cool colors with subtle warm accents and intriguing spotlight in this image.
