Spotting Scope Timelapse: Sunset Boulevard

For no good reason and/or the hell of it (using duct tape and earthquake hold) I managed to secure my cam lens to my backyard spotting scope eyepiece, which I then pointed at Sunset Boulevard between Micheltorena and Maltman in Silver Lake for the following two-minute timelapse of traffic. Maltman’s about two-thirds of a mile from the scope as the crow flies.

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."
