The new book of photos called Flowers of West Hollywood: from my 2020 Quarantine walks by photographer Mike Pingel is now available on

The book is full of beautiful images of flowers that Pingel, a resident of West Hollywood, took during his daily walks from the beginning of the pandemic in March through July 2020.

For many years, Pingel has enjoyed logging in his daily 10,000 steps to make his FitBit happy. When Covid-19 hit California and West Hollywood was closed down, Pingel continued to stay active with his walking to keep himself sane.

On one of these walks as the Los Angeles air began to clear, Pingel noticed that the flowers seemed to be super happy. "On my daily walks, I started to take photos of the blooming flowers of West Hollywood. Many of these images are posted on my Instagram account and are showcased within these pages. I hope you enjoy the beautiful flowers that have brought so much joy to me and the people of West Hollywood, CA." states Pingel.

The softback book is 8.5"x8.5" with 102 pages and almost 100 full color images of the flowers Pingel encountered during his walks. His walks around West Hollywood include La Cienega Blvd to Fairfax Blvd; Hacienda Place to San Vicente Bouvard: plus up and down side streets of Fountain Ave, Crescent Heights Ave, Laurel Ave, Kings Road, Sweetzer Ave, Harper St, Havenhurst Dr... or just simply ... all-round the West Hollywood neighborhoods.

"Funny I never thought of publishing a book of my flowers photos. However, a a friend was so complimentary about the images I posted on Instagram, it got me thinking and wondering how they would look in a book." mentions Pingel.

Pingel would love if you are walking around the WEST HOLLYWOOD area or Los Angeles to join the FLOWERS of WEST HOLLYWOOD Facebook page at and share your beautiful flowers photos from your own walk and share them with the hashtag #FLOWERSOFWEHO
