Tree Sheltering Bouncy Castle in Van Buren Place
[As part of the remit to make the Untold LA iPad Book available to as many people as possible I'll be posting photos from the book in sequential order on a regular basis until all of them are online.]
On pages 43-47 of the Van Buren Place Chapter we had Irene and Bob Grant talk about what it's like being the oldest couple on the block. Thought it would be nice to follow that on Page 48 with this shot a of a Camphor tree sheltering a bouncy castle at a child's birthday party.
I became progressively more fascinated with the flora of Southern California over the two years spent shooting Untold; this informs the experience of reading the book as one can't help but notice that the plant life, the trees, bushes and flowers of Los Angeles have intertwined themselves with the historic homes of West Adams, usually to beautiful effect.
