Decided to become a shutterbug this weekend and hit as many of the famous sites I could in between missions and mayhem.

 

Here are some "vacation" shots:

 

"Rodeo Drive:

Caught a tour in the Vinewood Tour Bus!:

When you shop in Los Santos, you shop BIG:

Another shot of the mall:

The trip into downtown was particularly entertaining:

That famous circular glass hotel that no one can get into...  Pretty sure Schwartzenegger rode a horse through that place once...:

Tallest tower in LS:

As the drunk next to me said while we drove by, it's "sh*tty Hall!"

Capitol Records building:

Inception!

The "Sunset Strip" in the sunset:

The view from outside the casino:

A day at Del Perro Beach:

I'm sure I missed a few, but not bad for taking a few minutes out wherever I was all weekend to snap a shot.  Share your "vacation pics" if you want!

This is the Arcadius Business Center, not a hotel.

 

At least in the game this is what it is.

I though the Arcadius Business Center was the tall-ass tower?

 

This building is a remake of the Westin Bonaventure hotel in downtown Los Angeles (and Schwartzenegger rode a horse through it in True Lies):

I forgot one!

 

The Vinewood sign, of course...

I bought this postcard at a service station in Sandy Shores. I think it had been on the rack since the 70s...

That is SWEET.  A morning pic, I'm guessing, with the fog in the distance...  I can't do anything but black and white and the sepia filter to any decent effect.  Everything else looks like I'm on drugs...

No, that's the Maze Bank tower. The building in the pic is the Arcadius business center in the game world. You can even see the "A" within the big blue circle.

 

I should know, I live right across from it in the Tinkle Building on Integrity Way Apt. 30. My apartment has a great view of the building's logo on the side. It's the smaller white building to the left.

I suppose I could copy this into the stories thread, but then we'd have people bitching that I duped my post for more attention, wouldn't we?

Mid morning I think, I'd been there for a while trying to duplicate an older sunrise shot for the car show competition. The fog I think came from a filter, its roughly halfway through and kind of brightens the colour and washes out the background.

I think this one, which I call Greetings from Grapeseed, uses the same filter or one close to it...
