Rooster On Wilshire Blvd.

There's a wild rooster on Wilshire Blvd., next to the Los Altos Apartments, a few blocks east of Crenshaw. (For you out-of-towners, this is close to downtown but also adjacent to the old-money section of Hancock Park.) He was there yesterday and again at seven this morning. There's also an empty ten pound bag of chicken feed which tells me he's been there a while, if you're interested in a field trip.

Maybe I'll post another photo later but right now I have to deal with a kidney stone problem. It hit me as I was taking pictures in Koreatown, ten long blocks from my car. Very painful and the drive home was no fun either. But now I'm flying high on vicodin and eating a Twix candy bar. I'm listening to Gabrielle Faure but The Velvet Underground would be much more appropriate.

***Now that the vicodin wooziness has worn off I can tell you that The Los Altos Apartments are an example of Spanish Revival architecture. It was built in 1925. Bette Davis, Charlie Chaplin and William Randoplh Hearst lived there and its still a pretty swell looking place. 4121 Wilshire Blvd.***

A few miles west I've spotted a chicken in the area bounded by La Cienega, Olympic, Robertson and Pico. I think stray fowl are an ongoing feature of Los Angeles

You should fight him!

(I don’t mean you personally. I mean, like, as his coach.)
