So after the tip from my friend Elson (who, by the way, will be performing with his band at tomorrow’s Streetsblog fundraiser) led me to the discovery that I crossed stop-motion paths pretty much simultaneously with the creator of another CicLAvia timelapse, I quickly realized that the East to West vid I posted was of my first return trip to East Hollywood from Boyle Heights, and not the latter mid-afternoon return trip in which we intersected.
So, sorry if this is getting a wee bit too repetitive for you, but of course I went into the archives and compiled those previously ignored and unseen frames into yet another timelapse â€” for no other reasons than posterity and to save it at an HD-level resolution (oh, yeah and to include Lightnin’ Hopkins’ “Back Home Boogie” as the soundtrack):
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."
