Summer is the time when one sees even more lovely old-timer cars on the roads than usual.

With no harsh winters and little rain, conditions for (not only) older cars are perfect. One sees them at every corner and they are always a delightful sight.

Something learned: That is how they kept the lines clean and unbroken. Quite ingenious!

Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot…

No, not bikini – this is the first Pedestrian Plaza conversion in Los Angeles.

Located at the corner of Sunset Blvd. and Griffith Park Blvd., it leaves me a bit… baffled. It is green, it certainly is low maintenance, but what’s wrong with a bit of living green here and there? Instead of polka dots on steroids?

On the other hand, the bicycle stands are fun! And being used. That is a good sign.
