I haven’t really kept up with this photoblog since moving day, two months ago. I’ll try to get back on track with a new post each week.
This is Aviation Station along the Los Angeles Metro Green Line, the closest station to LAX. (It doesn’t actually stop at the airport, but you can take a shuttle bus.) It’s also the nearest stop to my office. Before I moved, I’d sometimes take the train up to this point and a bus the rest of the way to work.
One night I was working late and missed the bus. Somehow convinced that the next one wouldn’t be by for an hour, I decided rather than sit and wait, I’d walk the mile and a half to the station. Three or four buses passed me, so it didn’t save me any time, but it was interesting to watch the planes line up for landing, and I caught this view of a train leaving the station as I was arriving.

On a related note, the Los Angeles Cold Fusion User Group is meeting next Wednesday (February 2). I’ve just helped set up the Facebook page and LinkedIn page for the group.

Ah, LA traffic! In theory we were merging onto I-5 (from another part of I-5 — yeah, the freeway interchanges are messy), but in reality, the car wasn’t moving at all. I had plenty of time to roll down the window and actually *aim* to snap this shot.
Los Angeles skyline seen from US Highway 101, taken on a clear April day…and a much cooler day than today’s record-setting 113 degrees!

A historic Los Angeles landmark, Angels Flight, from a less traditional perspective. The inclined railway on Bunker Hill was closed at the time I took this photo in 2006, but reopened last week.
