THE "NOT-SO" NEWS/JBLA: A Wash With Color...

A Wash With Color...


The rain has come and gone, the skies have cleared and brought a ray of sunshine back into our life.

Though the lightning and thunder and pelting rain wreaked havoc on the streets, freeways and hill sides before moving on, it left us a gentle reminder of its existance.

The Los Angeles Wash, or what many call the LA 'river', was busy helping move the water to less perilous destinations.

As I stood there watching the water flow by I was surprised by its calming factor. When I decided to check this site out thinking it would be Holga worthy, I had assumed it would be a raging torrent gushing towards the ocean, but instead it slid quietly along surrounded by its concrete barriers and chain link fence and very little debris.

If I had used something other than the Holga you most likely would have seen the wild morning glory cascading over the wall reflecting in the water below, but that of course would be cheating. What you see is what you get with this crazy little piece of equipment...that drives me crazy...I mean... that I love so much.

Well, tomorrow is another day and hopefully the sun will be shining, something prized by Holga users.

After nearly losing my camera into the waters below after bumping my arm into the fence I'm glad I was able to hold strong to that little plastic body image capturer.

Was it worth it? You betcha!

Hello there, I was recently doing a search through blogs for the keyphrase central.net ebook ebook ebookstore make money palm. I happened to come across yours even though it wasn't particularly related to what I searched for. I figured I wouldn't mind contributing to your blog by commenting it.

I know you may not think this is an appropriate post to your blog, however I would just like to compliment you on your blog and I wish you well in future endeavors with it,

"LEXX" is the most delightfully insane & twisted science fiction show ever made, and is also my all-time favorite thing to watch.
