Inside the City ... Outside the Box
Los Angeles pictures and stories by Laurie Allee


Welcome to LA: Other!  I'm Laurie Allee, and you can find out a little more about me by watching the video above.  

I came to Los Angeles  over 20 years ago. I've lived in Hollywood, Laurel Canyon, Venice Beach, Palms, West LA, Santa Monica and now (happily settled in) South Pasadena. I love telling stories about this city with words and pictures. I also love learning other people's stories -- both historical and current -- based on the landmarks and viewpoints I encounter throughout Southern California.  This is a place for all of those things.

Technical Details:

All photos are my originals, taken with a Nikon D3100, Lumix DMC-DS8 or, when I'm feeling nostalgic, one of my old film cameras. (I'm partial to my 1980 Yashica TLR.)

I also shoot with my iPhone. (4, 4S then 6)

All videos are my originals. Footage is shot with a Panasonic HDC-SD90 and a RODE microphone, but in a pinch I'll shoot with my iPhone. I edit on Sony Vegas and iMovie. Slideshows are sometimes edited on Animoto Pro.
