Staring at Walls

Can you handle yet another shot of brick walls? I'm a little obsessed with them. I've noticed them anew after spending far too much time lately in other parts of Los Angeles. It's nice to be away from the ubiquitous Southern California stucco and back to the bricks and mortar of old South Pas. Here, I lingered in back of Gus's long enough to admire the afternoon light playing off of all those rectangles. I might have taken even more pictures, but great barbecue beats art (and architecture) any day.

You should do a large installation of this shot and yesterdays hanging side by side in HUGE enlargments!! I love the angularity of it. Simple with three main elements: the red brick, the lighter brick behind and the blue sky. Nicely seen, my dear.

Jude, I thought you'd like this one! I'm just glad I could expose it right with that blast of sun on the back wall. (Love that fill flash.)

This reminds me of a shot you took some time ago in that abandoned parking garage on Arroyo. It is another great use of light and shadows.

Thanks, Mike! I remember the shot you are thinking of.

Until tomorrow!
