While killing some time waiting for Tuesday night’s downtown bike ride, I rolled around taking snaps of some of the local dramatic landmarkery (click to biggify):

The First Congregational Church of Los Angeles

The rear of the Bullocks Wilshire Building with beacon lit.

What I find most interesting about the two buildings is that the department store, opened in 1929, predates the cathedral like church that’s situated a block north by three years.

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."
