Not that I'm trying to portray the end of the world with this photo but I figure since today is 12/21/2012, it's only fitting ;)
Have a great friday and holidays folks!
So this past Saturday my wife got a call from Stephanie checking to see if I was available to photograph their engagement session next weekend... given that I had prior obligations scheduled, I respectfully declined.. then few seconds later, Stephanie goes "ok.. so how about tomorrow?" So with that, THANKS Stephanie and Brain for taking away my Sunday nap time! Just kidding :)
Last second call for an engagement session is sort of an adrenaline rush, there's no real time to prep, just pack the available gears and improvise. For Stephanie & Brian's session, the colors of the sunset proves that we picked a great day for a shoot... nap time well sacrificed :) Congrats Stephanie and Brian!
For a city full of drivers (approximately over 80% of the population), I didn't think there would be so many people here at the Downtown LA Union Station on a sunday evening. So since I arrived early for a portrait session, I was able to take couple of shots of its waiting area.
It's pretty rare that I post any photos from my own home town, even though I have millions of them in my archive. I guess grass is always greener since I'm always wishing that I'm anywhere else except LA. This weekend, I'll just chill and relax given that the next couple months going to be crazy....
Here's the beautiful download Los Angeles near sunset and the beautiful Walt Disney Concert Hall!
Happy Friday folks!

For the inaugural post of Mobile Monday, here's a shot I took by the Los Angeles City Hall, using my iPhone4 & Hipstamatic App. Being a LA native for the last 20 years, I know only a few of us have ever seen this Sister Cities signage unless you work around the area. So if this is your first time seeing this signage, drop by and take a snapshot of it the next you visit downtown for whatever reason (i.e. jury duty, lil' tokyo, city hall, etc.. ) Hopefully everyone in LA survived through this past weekend's hyped up "carmageddon" and enjoyed a nice quiet weekend away from the freeways. Speaking of carmageddon, check this out, "planking" on the 405 freeway!
P.S. - Let me know if you guys have any feedbacks on the installment of Mobile Monday.. I use my phone as a camera everywhere I go due to its portability so I figure this would be a good forum to post some of the photos from it!
I've lived in LA for most part of my life, and this is a first time I've ever step foot inside the Los Angeles Library. I was never really a "library" type of person, I spent most of my college life at Starbucks. I guess I need noise to actually focus! Anyhow, here's a HDR shot of the LA Public Library interior! Hope everyone have a great weekend!!!
Inspired by a fellow photog's shot (http://bit.ly/exgsfW), I was able to find this spot in downtown LA. "Double Ascension" sculpture by Herbert Bayer located in the middle of the old Arco Plaza (now City National Plaza) stands between two skyscrapers and two well known restaurants (Drago Centro & Chaya).
My last day of work before starting a new adventure at a new firm = Ecstatic yet bummed... A beautiful friday afternoon exploring downtown LA with the fiancee = Yumm-o-liciously fun (yes, I made up that up)
Bottega Louie was the perfect place for us to try out on that beautiful afternoon. Neither of us have ever been and there's been so many rave reviews about it amongst our facebook friends. Like the saying goes "if it ain't on facebook, it ain't official... " . So with that said.. I hereby quote and agreed with my fiancee's Yelp review: "OMG Portobello fries!! Sooooo good!"

It's already April and it's windy, cloudy, scattered shower.. I guess I should say welcome to Los Angeles! Anyhow, based on many facebook/tumblr posts from LA, (including mine: http://mobile.ronlimphotography.com/post/4446397434/now-this-is-a-beautiful-day). I figure I should a HDR of these gorgeous clouds over Mtn Wilson and San Gabriel Valley! So here ya go:
