I have lived in Los Angeles most of my life. My family moved here when I was nine years old. We came here from Philadelphia in 1948.
As a boy, in those less sophisticated times, I rode the city on trolleys and buses without any fear. It helped me to develop a little independence at a young age. Of course living in middle class family I never missed a meal and never worried about homelessness.
As a young man I had access to a car that enabled me to drive where ever I wanted.
I have been to Hollywood, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills and downtown so many times I lost count decades ago.
So now I have started a blog titled “Los Angeles – Love It and Hate It.”
You are invited to visit it whenever you are curious about the second largest city in the U.S.A. I will be writing about the good and the bad. Included will be lots of photos mostly taken by me.
Photo taken from Griffith Park Observatory parking lot looking west. Hollywood is in the foreground and the tall buildings are in Westwood (home of UCLA). Photo taken with a Panasonic DMC-FZ28 camera.
