Amazingness happens when it’s very unplanned … unexpected.
With recent dreams of Paris and the incredible inspiration you can get simply from drinking coffee outside a café, I’ve been aiming to find beauty in the simplest things throughout each day. A trip downtown to Heidi’s studio took me on a path under a surprisingly stunning bridge. Typically I would be walking on top of the bridge, taking in the wide beautiful views of downtown LA. However, it was under the bridge that I found what I was looking for. There were mounds of trash on the ground, graffiti splattered against the walls and an eerie silence of emptiness. Tucked beneath, hidden under the glory of her exterior, were the legs, the base core and building blocks of what keeps this structure standing. She isn’t perfect, in fact she is somewhat broken. However the most beautiful things in life usually are. Under the bridge is where amazing things can be found, so long as you are willing to look for them.
