I love these paintings of Los Angeles by artist Peter Alexander. The top one is my favorite. There is only one way to get this view: Taking off out over the ocean from LAX, sitting on the right side of the plane. You can see for miles up the Pacific Coast, past Pt. Dume. Pure beauty.

Returning home is lovely too:
