Maybe something was trying to tell me my time  at my temp gig this morning was fleeting but I was only listening subconsciously. Either way, for the 2.5 weeks I’d been working in El Segundo, each time I’d park in the employee parking structure I kept on promising myself I’d drive up to the highest level and get shots from the north and south sides.

Well, this morning I did it — and a good thing, too, because by this afternoon I was told my services were no longer needed (see earlier post below for the boring details).

The two shots I got aren’t all that interesting but they provide a low-flying bird’s-eye view of a seldom seen side of LAX to the north of the structure  and an even more unseen expanse to the south, like so:

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."
