I’ll be on reddit February 5th at 2pm est. feel free to ask me anything. Thanks.
happy december 25th (or 26th, as i’m sending this on the 25th and i assume it won’t reach you until the 26th. or 27th. i feel like i’m sending a letter).
i hope that you had and are having a really nice holiday time (based on whatever holidays you choose to observe / celebrate / indulge in / excoriate / ignore / etc).
i know this can be a hard and lonely time for some people, so if this is a hard and lonely time for you please take care of yourself and please know that you’re not alone.
i spent the day by myself, hiking around l.a in the unnaturally warm l.a weather (it was around 85 degrees f. today, which is warm even for l.a in december). and at the end of the day i climbed up to a ridge in griffith park and took this picture of l.a (and, to state the obvious, i wasn’t eaten by one of our mountain lions. yet).
to put it in size perspective, this picture probably represents around 1/1000th of l.a county. it’s big.
again, i hope you had and are having a wonderful holiday, and please reach out to someone if you’re feeling especially sad or lonely this time of year.
ok, i’m posting this as a quasi-architecture photo. hm. why?
ok, time to justify myself.
because… architecture defines a space and this rainbow also defines a space? and a simple curved line changes how we perceive the space contained both within and around it? is that too justify-y?
also i felt lucky that i was able to take this picture, as it’s a rainbow going from the observatory (which is architecture!) to the hollywood sign (which is architecture for the squirrels who probably live in the hollywood sign?).
also, happy holidays. next up: real buildings. well, in theory.
las vegas from my hotel room. at some point i’ll put on my architectural blogger hat and try to write/say something smart and/or witty and/or insightful about las vegas.
but not right now, as i need some sleep. in the meantime here’s las vegas before bedtime. well, ‘bedtime’ for me.
i’m working under the assumption that most of the people unseen in this picture will go to bed much later.
