Morning Snap: Ballona Creekside

The biggest joy I get from wearing my videocam sunglasses isn’t the capture of footage demonstrating bad road behavior. Rather it’s the mundane scenes they record in passing, moments otherwise forgotten that instead I get to faux up and celebrate.

Oooooooooo! Art Project! Taking a page from my friend Stephen’s book when he posted lakeside prints of the much-mourned and long-gone lotusflower of Echo Park Lake’s lagoon, I wouldn’t be surprised if the occaional still doesn’t start showing up, staked out in the vicinities of where they were snapped!

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."
