As I continue to live vicariously through that intrepid traveler, photographer and writer – Louise Hawson, this week I’m in LA!

Louise’s project has me checking in weekly to see which corner of the globe she has focused her design eye on. I love the way she finds the beauty in what some may consider the ordinary, her attention to the world around her and its hidden treasures reminds me that its in this focus and attention that we can enrich our everyday lives.

Don’t take my word for it, visit her blog at 52suburbs.com and read this weeks entry on LA, there are Mexicans, witchdoctors, tattooed beauties, Madonnas (the religious icon not the super star) and traffic jams a plenty. Nothing like a bit of lap top travel for inspiration.
