12 of 12 March 09

The 12 of 12 is a fun photo essay project started by a guy named Chad (click link) that I try to do every month. This month I finally got to do one I've been thinking about: 12 pics in under 12 minutes, on the 12th(of course) on my roof.

-A view looking east (downtown LA) from the east edge of the roof.

-Looking south through the gazebo - that's right, we have a gazebo on out roof.- With added bonus partial self portrait.

-A view through the fire hose pipes to the Wilshire business district area, kinda northeast. I love how these pipes look, will have to get a larger pic someday.

-One of the semi-rotting grills parked in tandem in the once well-used bar-b-q area.

-Down the vent pipe.

-Antenna sky.

-Another style vent pipe with another style partial self portrait.

-Western sunset view from mid roof. It really is quite nice up here.

-Straight north from same mid roof spot.

-Emergency teams down on the street.

-Still life- flaking wrought iron door, with broken chair and gas vent still contraption.

-Looking down into the odd courtyard for 2, parking lot, little garages, and the bottom of the new condo that you saw going up over the past couple years' 12's.

Wow, stunning views from the roof, the fire hose pipes is my favourite arty shot. And no way would I have been able to look down to get that last picture!
