My Happy Place
my name is: CRUZ
i'm sharing: This is a photo of my girlfriend Flannery on the deck atop The Getty Center, overlooking Los Angeles. We go to The Getty at least once a month and I always bring my camera.
this was inspired by: There was a point in time, maybe 4 or 5 years ago, where I was really lost. I didn't know who I wanted to be, where I wanted to live, what I wanted to do with my life, or the types of people I wanted to surround myself with. I was probably at my lowest point when a friend recommended I visit The Getty Center, so one afternoon I went alone. In short, it was a completely transformative experience for me. I walked around The Getty all day, and I found something peaceful and spiritual there that I absolutely needed. That was really a turning point for me, I felt like I finally knew of a place in Los Angeles that could change someone's entire perspective. So now, I visit the Getty often with the people I love. It's a reminder for me to keep going and searching for my happy place.
to me, inspiration is: Inspiration to me is never feeling like you've got it all figured it, because none of us do. As a professional creative person, it's my job to be curious and learn as much as I can every day. Any day where I can humble myself to this truth is a great and inspired day.
