"One of LA's 30 Essential Blogs." L.A. Observed
Interesting cultural detail. Blue lighting though..kinda creepy.
Sometimes people with less are very industrious when it comes to getting around the high cost of housing spirituality; note the covers used to disguise common fold up chairs.Wish I could figure out how to link this blog post to mine. You and I are driving on a similar route.
The blue cloth on the chairs and your placement of the aisle just left of center add drama yet keep things understated as well. Very nice. Also, I like PA's comment about the socioeconomic aspects of spirituality. Do other religions make as big (and often hypocritical) a deal of financial modesty as Christianity does (rich man, camel, eye of needle, etc.)? Do you know why it's "shalom" right beside the announcement that it's a Christian church? I haven't attended in a long time--is that now the custom?
They've put such a lot of effort into this space.
A weird approach to scenography, this very well marked alley leading to an elusive double curtains. What lies beyond? The mystery of spirituality?
And... neon lights are cheap but provide such a distressing light!
