Photos from WWW Conference

As a former journalist who forgot her camera, I’m relying on the photo-journalism of Joyce Lohse, fellow Women Writing the West author, to give a glimpse of our conference highlights in LA recently.

Beautiful sculptured gardens at Getty Center drew most of our attention on our short tour. We were also able to take in a 1951 B&W photo exhibit by Irving Penn. I can see that one could spend several days at the Getty to see it all!

  1. The Getty Gardens look magical. Going to conferences is a good thing. You get a different view of writing and publishing every time.

  2. I’ve heard such wonderful things about the Getty Center. How fortunate that you got to tour the gardens! I hope to do the same one day.

  3. Looks like you had a great time and got to see something different and beautiful. I’m glad someone had pictures to share. Rotten luck forgetting your camera. I’ve got my Iphone, but if it ran out of juice, I’d also be stuck.
