I took some beautiful pictures a few days ago, mainly of things that are beautiful to begin with. Here is one that I would not recognize before this week. It's a fairly well-known spot, but one I just hadn't visited.
I'll post more about it later, or tomorrow.
Meanwhile, here's something to ruminate on which ties in with the photo nicely: an essay on the history of open space in Los Angeles, "Privatized Leisure," by historian Lawrence Culver.
Culver wrote The Frontier of Leisure: Southern California and the Shaping of Modern America in 2010. I can't link to it on Amazon but I'm sure you can figure out how to buy it.
