Photo by Martin Cox: Echo Park Lake 2007
A Martin Cox photo is worth 1,500 words. And this one is lovely and horrible for all the noise it suggests. Then, today, I received a video clip of fireworks from blogger Kevin McCollister, who said, "I was at the 4th of July celebrations at Echo Park [Lake] and took this video (it seemed like a war zone)."
I forwarded the short clip to my husband, RJ Smith, and his response:
Wow -- that was kind of cool in a harrowing sort of way! A cross between Blair Witch Project -- if BWP's camera holder had been running between palm trees -- and tracer fire scene from some Vietnam movie. I hope the turtles were asleep in their shells.
