Highland Park Survey 2010 Recap

January 28, 2011

1959 Chevy El Camino in the San Pascual neighborhood in the years 2007, 2008, and 2010.

 

First and foremost, Thank You to everyone who participated in the Highland Park Survey 2010. (Not too late to add your own photos, provided they were taken here between 12/25 and 12/31.) It was insightful as always. This year I discovered, slivers of Mount Washington and Eagle Rock were actually in 90042. Some things have changed, and some things stayed the same. Seeing these places and photos year after year is like watching waves along the shore. Seeing patterns. developments, and surprises all around us. Time marches on, the only thing that remains the same is that everything will change.

Things I photographed this year:

Horizontal Fences.

People on roofs fixing leaks.

People riding bicycles.

Vintage cars.

Apartment Buildings with romantic names.

Birds.

Stairways.

Illegally privatized public property.

Construction.

Development notices.

Transit.

Graffiti.

Art.

Churches.

More barking dogs.

Views from Santa Fe Hill, Monterey Hills, Mount Washington, Mount Angelus, and Townsend Peak.

Barack Obama’s 90042 residence. (The zip code cuts through Occidental College in Eagle Rock, making his 1979 dorm room at Haines Hall within the 90042!)

    The yearly survey, among everything else on this blog, is something to be proud of.
