So if this is going to be primarily a photo blog, I guess I should start by uploading a photo, eh?
This is one my all-time favorites, from the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica. As magazines die, the outdoor newsstand is quickly becoming a dinosaur looking up at the comets spinning through the sky. I’m sure no one makes a ton of money selling magazines to the public, but I love the lure of racks covered with … well, covers. This nighttime shot was grabbed a few years ago on one of my sporadic trips to the City of Angels.
