Up On The Roof

Yesterday might not have been the snap, crackle or poppiest  of clear days for the L.A. basin, but t’weren’t too shabby as balmy winter days go. And having to get up on the roof yesterday for a minor chore I brought my camera with me to see what could be seen (click the thumbnails for larger versions):

The directions, from left are basically north, northwest and west. In the middle frame I particularly like how from up there the Hollywood sign can be found peeking through the Micheltorena ridge palm trunks.

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 laonstage.com, 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."
