A certain state of Nature

Lorry on lower Landa Street in Echo Park.


This truck has been on what looks like a private property for at least one year -- probably much more. The hillside grasses have been mowed. There are piles of rotting clothing. Also a huge mass of broken cement farther downhill; possibly the remains of a driveway or home foundation.

Of course, I had to look up Luke 10: 30-35. And 35 says, "Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness." It's an easy irony, on lower Landa, but intriguing and sad, too.
