South Carthay

Spanish Homes

Crescent Heights

Single Family

Historic District

The South Carthay neighborhood was developed in the 1930s with duplexes and fourplexes on the exterior blocks and single-family homes on the interior blocks. The Spanish Colonial Revival duplexes are emblematic of Westside urban chic. The original Spanish style is maintained by historic preservation zoning codes (HPOZ).

Focus of Interest


The Heat

Wilshire Western Red Line Station

Morning Commuter

Riding the Blue Line from Downtown Long Beach to West LA is full of ample opportunities for photograhpic expression and documentary photography. To prevent undue attention from the Sheriffs, I shot with a slow sputter speed, which produced a nice photographic effect.

Over the next year and half I will photographing the construction of a new residential high rise, West Ocean, in downtown Long Beach. If one has not seen the construction of a skyscraper, it is an amazing sight to see. I tried this with limited sucess with the construction of the Camden Development across from City Hall.
