the suburbs.

My parents live on a hilly cul-de-sac in Los Angeles.  At the bottom of the hill, just across the street, is a little park with a handful of picnic tables beneath leafy trees; not much to look at really, and there’s no playground, so the place is often empty.  At the top of the hill, right where the street dead ends, is a clearing — I guess there’s a gasline of some sort, maybe a power substation?  I didn’t investigate very thoroughly, though over the course of the week that I was home this past August, I went out every night just before dinner to take a few photos up and down the street.  The photos here are arranged from the bottom of the hill to the very top, where a dilapidated fence makes a half-hearted attempt to ward off trespassers.

    Great shoots, but not a cactus.

    Thanks for the kind words, though I’m not sure what you mean about the cactus — it was sitting right at the top of the hill (you can see it in the distance in the shot preceding it), so it was already there! Where my parents live in LA is pretty dry, almost desert-like, so cacti are quite common in the area.

    Nice set 🙂 i think the cactus works in well here, especially with the litter because just tbt photo alone could give somebody an idea of the sites and atmosphere of the area could be like
