Thursday, August 27, 2009 Urban Mirages

One of those August days in Los Angeles, over a hundred before noon and the air filled with smoke from the wildfires all around the city schools cancel recess and sports and keep the kids inside and things just look strange, especially down the hill on Melrose Avenue, starting with this air-conditioning unit

"Vent Nose" - rooftop air-conditioning unit, Melrose Avenue

And then there are the four blonds and the cardboard box

And the women on the wall start to stare at you
