Los Angeles

I have been to Los Angeles so many times for work and it was always like a little holiday. Coming from New York with all the stress and noise, LA just has so much space, so much sun and an ocean. Over the years I've gotten to know people and sometimes my NY friends would be there for work at the same time as me, so we'd get together and make it special away from all the work.

These pictures were taken years later when I was long gone from the US. In fact, I was five months pregnant and it was important to me to see Mary again. She moved to LA shortly afterwards and I started my new life in Berlin. When would be the next time I could get on a plane alone and hang out with her? Eat mochi ice cream, listen to records and watch TV.

We took a trip to Joshua Tree in her '77 Firebird! Mary and I travelled a lot together for work, but never just the two of us. So it was about time.

Driving this car for such a long trip is an adventure in itself. With the windows open, the music playing and the loudest engine ever heard, we drove past beautiful scenery, a dozen doughnut shops, endless roads, the mountains and no man's land. It was the last time we had so much time together! I just wish we lived closer together somehow!

Our last stop for a sunny-side-up breakfast was a café just outside Joshua Tree National Park.
