L.A. celebrates la Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe

Kevin McCollister, the photographer whose book and blog are both called "East of West L.A.," was out Sunday and Monday nights for the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. East of Alvarado Street he found the city was outside, praying and "much celebrating." West of Alvarado, not so much. More at his blog.
