Of all the things I’ve seen while cycling 4,200 miles of the city’s streets this past eight months, such scenes with me are seldom more than the most fleetingly glimpsed (click to triplify).

Here’s to being a thousand miles away from my revised goal and maybe getting a thousand more miles past it before the year’s out.

Snapped northbound on Sepulveda Boulevard in Culver City having just crossed Jefferson Boulevard (image flipped horizontally to spell out all signage forwards because I like it better that way and because it gives the faux illusion of having been taken by someone else inside the office window I was passing).

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."
