the freedom tree

Last week I was searching my archive of photos for something orange. This one from 2009 is one of my favorites.

the freedom tree - los angeles, california - march 2009

What: Flowers in a park. According to a nearby plaque, this is The Freedom Tree.

Where: Somewhere in downtown Los Angeles.

When: March 2009

Why: A few months earlier I'd been abruptly laid off from a job. I had some time on my hands, so I tagged along with Rich on a trip to California. He attended a conference and I bopped around Santa Barbara, Malibu, Venice and downtown LA with my first DSLR, a Nikon D80.
