South Central Trees Get The Chop

Over 400 trees, many in South Central LA, will get the chop this week. The Space Shuttle Endeavour is expected to need to the extra room to maneuver through out the city. Many of the lovely aged trees will have to be cut down to stumps so the Shuttle may reach it's final destination at Exposition Park.
The trees will be replaced with saplings at a rate of 4 to 1 for now, but it will take up to 25 years for the trees to mature and provide the visual grandeur of the prior trees, if they make it that long.

Occupy Movement One Year Old

Today is the one year anniversary of the Occupy Movement. Saw these table settings at the JW Marriot hotel today, where candidate Mitt Romney is giving a speech to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

The 99% set tables for the 1%'ers.

Always room at the table.

Never Forget

Took this photo back in 1992.
It's the first time I ever saw the giant buildings in real life. Was amazed by how tall they were.
Shot this picture and made a photo-postcard for my LA friends back home, never did mail it to anyone. Thought who would wanna see this photo.
Well, here you are my friends.

Candidate Bill Clinton Back in the Day

I was working in Los Angeles with Harold Meyerson of the LA Weekly, who was reporting on the Presidential race back in 1991. Standing next to us was candidate Bill Clinton. Harold said to me,"take his photo, he's gonna be the next President of the United States."
