a pre-emptive apology, but i'm only posting one picture of this phenomenal place.
to be honest, i even feel hesitant and guilty in putting up this one picture, as:
1-there's a sign outside of this phenomenal place asking people not to take pictures (mea culpa, i took a picture).
and 2-the people in the neighborhood would drive me out with pitchforks if i revealed more about where and what it is.
so what is it? i can't tell you. i'm sorry. but it's amazing, and it's my sincere hope that someday somehow you'll get to see it for yourself.
l.a is filled with remarkable stuff, but this is definitely in my top 10. again, corner me in a parking lot or at nature mart and i'll tell you what it is.
oh, a random aside, a friend was visiting l.a this weekend and we went for a walk around bronson canyon and franklin village and the aforementioned friend said, 'why do people hate l.a? l.a is amazing.' i just nodded smugly and sagely. ok, maybe more smug than sage. and i refrained from telling my friend about the head in the bag that had been found nearby, as i thought that would just spoil the moment.
ok, cryptic photo time (if nothing else how can you not be smitten with a place identified by a 'caution: munchkin crossing' sign?).
