I'm out of commission for a while and will not be blogging for at least the next few months. I'm still reading comments on old posts and responding to emails so feel free to continue to contact me.


  1. Found your blog through a comment you left on Big Orange Landmark - sorry I missed you before your hiatus. But I've enjoyed browsing your blog! I think we have similar taste and interest - with each post I read I discovered either something I've written about, or something I've been curious about. Wonderful writing and photos. Hope you come back soon.

  2. great photos and blog!

    It's helped me discover different and learn about different of the city. You might enjoy my blog as well, similar topics:

    Enjoy your hiatus, and look forward to future posts.

  3. Great blog! I have the same story. I just moved here from LA and I started a blog doing precisely the same thing :) I just came from the LA Conservancy's Historic Core tour, which is how I got here (researching the Bradbury building)!

    I hope you come out of your hiatus when you're ready :)


  4. I stumbled upon your blog while researching some architectural features of the High Tower area. I then spent the next hour viewing all the other architectural features of your posts, and had to pry myself away to get back to business.

    You have created a very impressive and informative blog; KUDOS!

  5. Oh, I hope you return soon from your hiatus! Just discovered your blog while searching for Googie architecture. Love that post and other entries about all that is Los Angeles! :)

  6. Really enjoy your blog. I love the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook as well. Although I'm a soCal native, I'm constantly discovering and exploring this vast and diverse city. Cool posts!

  9. Just read your whole blog and loved it! Hopefully you'll start it up again soon. I already have so many new ideas for exploring this amazing city. Thanks!

  10. Hi from France,
    What a wonderful blog.
    I spent 3 days in L.A. in 2009. It was too fast, but I loved it. I'll come back next year and your blog is precisely what I was looking for. I now have many interesting pages to read, thank you !!!
