Another nice time-laspe by Colin RIch. "It was an nightly adventure that took me to almost every angle of Los Angeles," Rich explains. "It was an exercise in patience. A lesson in light." Parts one and two at Creators Project.
This artist captures the details that downtowners love; detail in bridges or light standards. As per her website:
Teale approaches the practice of art in an investigative, experimental and research-minded way. A fourth generation Angeleno and an advocate of historic preservation, she finds Los Angeles to be the ideal source of subject matter for her paintings. Its history often being dismissed for its future, Teale hopes to bring attention to Los Angeles architecture by offering viewers their often unrealized, but always personal experiences of a city on the cusp of understanding its historical significance.
Hatheway will be featured at Gallery 1927 during Downtown Art Walk.
Will the Wolf Survive? (1986) Los Lobos Dir: Mick Haggerty
Downtown Los Angeles is the dream destination, and escape, for a couple in this "meet cute" troupe on a pre-gentrified Main Street. Also note the band's logo as street art. It's the 40th Anniversary for Los Lobos, and "We feel like the Forrest Gumps of Chicano rock," said Cesar Rosas in the November 13th LA Times. "We've sort of been in a lot of trippy places, you know? We've met presidents too, a lot of heavyweights. Chicano kids playing with the Grateful Dead, you know?"

Figueroa And Temple, then and now. 1939 via Caltrans. Current image via Googlemaps.
Caltrans District 7 dug in the archives for
this 16mm Kodachrome footage of Arroyo Seco Parkway. Some portions date back to 1939. The parkway was dedicated on December 30, 1940. "It was something previously unseen in the
western United States – a lushly landscaped pleasure ride that was
capable of handling speeds up to 45 miles per hour," wrote Caltrans in 2011, the 70th Anniversary of the corridor. In the clip, onward through the Figueroa Street Tunnels you shall go before the commute ends at Figueroa and Temple.
