two architecture updates in one day. see, i’m not lazy. well, i’m sort of lazy.
the reason i’m including this is that i love these collapsing dilapidated ‘gods little acre’ shacks, and also that i love living in a city that is so odd as to include palaces and collapsing shacks, and also that i saw these shacks on my way home from visiting the palace. and i think that’s it.
l.a is just so weird. see, that’s part of a valid academic lexicon for an on-line discussion of the merits of urban architecture. weird. but it is. modern houses, mid century masterpieces, oddball palaces wherein jimi hendrix might have written ‘purple haze’, beige 1980’s horror houses, and tiny crumbly shacks like this.
sure, all cities are by definition kind of eclectic. but i just described the houses on one small street in my neighborhood.
p.s after taking these pictures i sat on the front steps with atticus finch and boo radley and had some coke colas while shooing flies.
Thank u Moby.
It’s a heartbreaking story told in just six pictures.
After a fire destroyed nine houses on one block of Garland Street in Detroit, the Detroit News looked back to tell the block’s story. While their reporting went back nearly a century, the images only need to go back seven years to make an impact.
Swamp House. Out on a shoot between Thidodaux and Raceland, LA I found this old place surrounded by yellow flowers. There were so many beautiful old places on this historic road, but I was on the company clock and didn’t stop at any others.
