Took a little walk from the office to 21st and maple yesterday to take photos of rats and roaches – my favourite part of the job! The good news is that I get to take photos of other things, I love this neighbourhood. If you need a bit of religion this is the place to come, just walking down to the local liquor store can be a religious experience.
Juan Diego and la Virgen
Ghetto boyz tags as well, those are some active kids! Brave as well, I’ve seen them out on the street spray paint cans in hand in full daylight.
La virgen otra vez
Christ makes an appearance from time to time as well
And my favourite
The owners of El Principio, “The Begining,” are definitely among the faithful. it’s not just stores though, regular folks do things like this…
If anyone needs an apron, I can get you one, just let me know. We have hardware supplies too, with folks selling fresh cilantro, nopales etc every couple of blocks as well, yum.
It’s an amazing place LA.
