Living in this city means bearing witness to a higher than average amount of strange sights and vast array of definitions of socially acceptable human behavior on the daily. Oftentimes the overabundance of L.A. weirdness we see in our day-to-day is almost beyond words when attempting to accurately describe it to those who weren't there. But now with Instagram, the heavy lifting is taken care of for us in capturing a breathtakingly peculiar or otherwise noteworthy vision and sharing it with the world. So we've decided to celebrate L.A.'s knack for proving life can always get a little bit funkier.
From men on horseback crossing Crenshaw Blvd to a Ben Affleck sighting and topless maid services, we proudly bring you a collection of the strangest, most absurd and seriously WTF moments you pretty much only ever see in L.A. Insta-captured in the last week.
See something in L.A. that is totally rad/wonderfully peculiar/simply no words in the English language could do justice to describe? We'd love to see it too. Tag us @gofgLA and hashtag "#onlyinLA."

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
