Double Rainbow Over Silver Lake

Me again, with the rough-stitched panorama. Funky weather we’re having, eh?

The cloudcover’s been a nice filter for the blazing hot sun, but it got a bit hostile lateyesterday afternoon with lightning, thunder even a few drops through the oppressively muggy subtropical temperatures of an intensely liquid substance the weather people are on rare occasion known to refer to as “rain.”

And then there was that nice double rainbow (or a rainbow and a fragment of a second one if’n you wanna be technical) that I tried valiantly to pixelize through our bedroom window (click it for the bigger picture):

The weird thing? At the end of the main rainbow? American Apparel owner Dov Charney’s hilltop mansion (blocked from view by the giant bird of paradise leaf in the foreground).

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."
