Last night, Khris Griffis and I stopped by The Grove to get some dinner at the Farmers Market and to catch some sights of shoppers scurrying around for some last minute gifts. For those not familiar with The Grove, it’s a massive retail and entertainment complex that is built right next to the legendary Farmers Market in the west side of Los Angeles, pretty much a tourist trap. They also are known for their massive holiday decorations and just over-the-top-ness, in the passed they have even made it snow.
For this shot we had to use our bags as tripods and battle the pesky tourist to squeeze to the front the fountain. We didn’t even attempt to bring in tripods just on the mere fact of The Grove’s crazy security presence. So to get this, it was just me on my knees, pounding out a campaign of exposures, and getting the sink-eye from a nearby tourist.
