Daily Inspiration #366 by Dro Grigorian
After 30 years of living in LA, an old friend decides to leave the city and move to a little suburban town up north. A combination of living from paycheck to paycheck not being able to meet the right guy, she decides to throw one last art show and then hit the road. A little abandoned art gallery in south-east Los Angeles is where the party is going to be. I didn’t expect much potential to take photos, but never the less, I have my Leica M8 with me. I was quite surprised when I walked in however. Even though the place was not visually appealing, spotlights all over the ceiling created incredible contrasted lighting. I started to shoot. Most people there having never seen a Leica, were interested in that antique looking thing that was in my hand, with a tiny lens and looked like it was from 1960’s photo shoot. Anyway, the night was fairly quite and mellow. Most people were sad that a good friend was going to be gone for good. I managed to snap a few happy moments in night. I hope you can find the lighting interesting enough to allow this little story to reach the daily inspiration.
