Morning Snap: Towering Sunflowerings

I’m regularly harping what one misses while behind the wheel of an automobile, but the same thing can happen from a bike saddle, too. I pass this building at the bottom of the hill on my street every day on my way to work and most of the time on my way home, and assuming these massive sunflowers didn’t just sprout to this height overnight I found them in all their tall awesome for the first time today (click image for triplification).

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."
