Venice is an exciting beach town in the west of Los Angeles, labelled as “a cultural hub known for its eccentricities”. The area has a strong bohemian spirit and is full of free-spirited locals and curious tourists who want to experience its buzzing boardwalk, quirky shops and all-around intoxicating vibe.
Venice is a great place to spend a chilled-out day in Los Angeles. I hope these photos I shot on my recent visit convince you to give it a chance…
