Today’s glittering yellow sun almost made me forget that yesterday a rare and beautiful rain fell from Los Angeles skies. All morning and afternoon puddles formed across great expanses of concrete. The arteries of the city were swollen with water. I dusted off my Astoria oilcloth hat and rain slicker and happily splashed to school. Yes boys and girls, sometimes rain really does leave the clouds and spill down on the earth – even in Los Angeles.
You didn’t think I was finished with Through The Viewfinder photos did you? Oh Muchachos! I’m just getting started!
A carnival was setting up yesterday in a neighborhood park. Perfect.
With or without the traveling side-show my neighborhood has a decidedly carnival atmosphere. Regentrification hasn’t pulled in to my neck of the woods yet.
These kind of photos lend themselves well to the viewfinder frames. And my latest brush acquisitions lend themselves well to these fragments from the visual journal. The almighty GOOGLE machine was kind enough to provide me with every single possible thing I could ever want to learn about brushes. If you’re a curious type it won’t take you long to be brushing away.
Full Monty shots coming up tomorrow.
ATTENTION: Get your arse over to DAILY COYOTE First buckle your seatbelts and go get a rubber mallet to bite down on. My sister brought this blog to my attention. When she was here we saw a coyote watching us in some nearby hills. If a baby shows up on my doorstep the cat posse will have to make do because I’m bringing him inside and we’re going to all pile on the bed together. You heard it here first.
Please bring me a baby coyote for Christmas. That’s all I want. I’ll feed him and water him and love him.
