17 Days on the Road: A Different Kind of City

Probably much to the relief of our Toyota, we would finally be parking it and sleeping in actual rooms & relying on public trans for a bit. While a much different city for sure, it had the kind of color I love.

17 Days on the Road: LA IV

What is it that truly makes a place.... well.. itself Is it purely location? It's Landmarks? The People?

Layers upon layers Much like the fusion of cinder blocks & cement, the various layers of paint also work here to bring about a new and unique structure. Not all that unlike the way the concrete & great stone face became one in "Hoover II" Read more!

17 Days on the Road: LA I

For me I've always been fascinated graffiti by graffiti Whether it's my appreciation the hand crafted vision of another artist, or the color and life that it can add to something forgotten & cast away. I can't quite pinpoint the reason, but I normally love what it adds, and here at the old abandoned Zoo was no exception. Read more!
