Silver Lake Gothic

I turned from my desk this morning and found this poised pair, as if at a formal portrait sitting, so I grabbed my camera and obliged. And since there was that lovely light in which they stayed put after the snap, I put the cam on a tripod and got 1:37 of video of them further sitting (and in Ranger’s case snoozing with occasional rabbit-chasing twitchings). The only sounds, an outdoor windchime in the breeze, a passing vehicle or two, and the ticking of a wall clock in the house.

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."
