After almost causing a few wrecks in Los Angeles city traffic, I handed the camera to my eleven year old son. He did a good job, I think, of capturing some of Los Angeles' more gritty, urban life that lies right out the car window.
This speaks for itself -- Paramount Studios, just around the corner from the boys' school.
(not sure why this appealed to him, but hey, it's a California fire hydrant)
More Paramount studios and movie trailers -- ubiquitous in our neck of the woods.
Los Angeles evidently has the most per capita burger joints in the world. And we're not talking Golden Arches -- we're talking vintage fabulous, like Astro Burgers.
What is that? Henry asked, before snapping the picture, because it's fast becoming an anachronism -- an old public telephone that has seen better days.
a snippet of Melrose and if you look at the sign above it, I think another home foreclosure notice (sadly quite common in these abysmal economic times)
Happy Corner View!
Thanks for this travel... i'm just a little sick in the car !ReplyDelete
Like I said before, when I was in LA, every block was like deja vu- all because so much of it has been on film that I've seen.ReplyDelete
I actually really like the hydrant shot! A similar photo I took 35 years ago got me the job of high school photographer for the yearbook!ReplyDelete
Great idea, thanks for sharing.
Tell your son he did a wonderful job! And that I like what he showed us. He should join our little CV community. ;)ReplyDelete
Have a great day, Jeannette
You have a future photographer there! He took some great pictures. Love the yellow fire hydrant.ReplyDelete
