Timelapse: Rainy Day Ride

On the second day of Bike Week Los Angeles, the weather proved noncooperative. But the precipitation was faaaar from enough to keep me from attending the annual Blessing of the Bikes at Good Samaritan Hospital and then afterward meandering exploratorally back up to my neighborhood, where I then took the time to document a large mural near my house before visiting my polling place and voting in the school board and community college trustee elections.

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."
