I took a late afternoon stroll along the coast at Fort Funston, often pausing to behold the long sweeping waves of the Pacific. Hope everyone is enjoying a bright start to the new year.
Mmm… there is nothing quite like a lazy day at the beach in Los Angeles. Even a good book begins to feel like work when you can simply close your eyes and drift off to the sound of waves… and after living in a city where the beaches are freezing, I was happy to go south where the sand was soft and the waters warm enough to play in.
It was also exciting to see Richard Neutra’s VDL Research House II (1964), built after his original studio and family home was destroyed from fire.
It’s been another month and well into the summer season since I last wrote. The days have been full with spectacular music shows like Robag Wruhme, Omar Souleyman, and Matmos; Balenciaga at the De Young Museum, Isabelle de Borchgrave at the Legion of Honor; and a trip up to Seattle to see some architecture, sip delicious coffee and visit with some long-lost Fraggles. Oh yes, and memory-drenched ambient releases from the Caretaker, Ezekiel Honig and Matthew Cooper. Here are a few photos from the trip north:
