Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Recession Fence

Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Recession Fence

Grants are hard to come by these days. Just kidding. I like the works of Christo and Jeanne-Claude. I drove up to see their Umbrellas when they were in the Grapevine. It’s hard to describe the impact of a work that’s made not for language but for the senses. People stopped alongside the freeway to […]

Zen Monday: #172

Zen Monday: #172

Zen Monday’s the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the picture’s about. There’s no competition, no right or wrong. We’re here to have fun.I look for something worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or silly. Or all of the above, if I’m […]

Lincoln Heights: Views

Lincoln Heights: Views

I took this photo near a playground. I can just hear this kid at the end of the day: “I don’t remember where I left them, Mom! I took them off to play in the sand, and…” Today’s our last day in Lincoln Heights. Tomorrow we’ll return with Zen Monday and our regular PDP programming […]

Lincoln Heights: Art

Lincoln Heights: Art

There’s art all over Lincoln Heights. Here’s some of it. We talked about Lincoln Park yesterday in the comments. I like this piece a lot, and not just because you can frame a tree with it. I like how the neighborhood rises beyond it, like its reason for being there. If you turn around you […]

Lincoln Heights: Caballeros

Lincoln Heights: Caballeros

This statue of Emiliano Zapata Salazar, aka Zapata, was a gift from Mexico City to the City of Los Angeles in 1980. It stands at El Parque de Mexico. You’ll find several sculptures of Mexican heroes there, though we noted some busts were missing and I’m not sure why. This statue of Jose Maria Morelos […]

Lincoln Heights: Blessings

While in Lincoln Heights we stopped at Sacred Heart Church (est. 1897) for a few minutes and listened to the high school kids sing. The church was packed. It was noon-ish on a Wednesday. It was hard not to be charmed. Sacred Heart School is across from the church. Karin tells the story of the […]

Lincoln Heights: Architecture

Lincoln Heights: Architecture

Here’s my shot of Manny. This little house is next door to a convenience store where we stopped for refreshments and a break. I can’t begin to show you all the architecture of Lincoln Heights in one post. It’s vastly diverse and there’s a lot of change going on according to Manny. A lot of […]

Lincoln Heights: Story

Lincoln Heights: Story

We knew by the view from the train platform that we were in for something interesting. Not to mention the view underneath the tracks. You’ll forgive me, I hope, for taking us on a detour a mere 15 minutes southwest of South Pasadena on the Gold Line. As I mentioned Sunday, Karin, Bellis and I […]

Lincoln Heights Week

Lincoln Heights Week

reflections in a store window across from Abraham Lincoln High School I said I needed a vacation and I got one. Last week I toured Lincoln Heights with Manny Rodriguez, who’s lived there since his family came here from Mexico when he was six years old. Manny knows the neighborhood almost as well as the […]
