Night & Day

At the request of reader Paul to show our backyard vista in the daytime I went out this morning and just before 8:30 a.m. snapped this shot of it from the same vantage point as the ones taken a couple nights ago and seen in my previous post:


In the daylight I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the removal of the trees a couple doors to the north now allow us to see the Griffith Observatory (as indicated by the left-most arrow). You’ll want to go check out the larger version up on Flickr here, though I’ll apologize in advance for my addiction to the anisotropic diffusion filter in Photoshop. I just love the illustrative effect it provides.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
