Getty Villa

When I moved to LA in 1999, the Getty Villa was closed for renovations.
On Thursday I was finally able to visit the Getty Villa since it’s reopening in 2006.
I decided to bring my DSLR but I had forgotten to charge the battery.
Here are a few memorable moments with my iPhone, Camera+, and Instagram.
Enjoy!
