THE BEAUTY IN EXPIRED LA BY  VICKY MOON

CA, Los Angeles-based photographer Vicky Moon - "Expired L.A. is an on going series of my exploration of Los Angeles at night. Every building is unique and captivating, as well as the individual color shifts each building creates with every exposure. I am fascinated by the drama that is created by the night sky and seek the beautiful in the over looked; I find the mundane to be extravagant and I find the beauty in the expired; This is my Los Angeles."

Moby Los Angeles Architecture Blog:

i’m in new york and montreal and el paso this week, so unfortunately this will be my last architectural update until next monday.

but in the meantime here are some pictures of what is arguably one of the most historic and iconic and remarkable houses in l.a, the schindler house.
it’s been photographed about a million times, and deservedly so, for it’s a beautiful and idiosyncratic and strangely bucolic (although a lot of that is, of course, the setting) house.
it also has a really idealistic and idiosyncratic history, here’s the wikipedia page if you’re interested:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schindler_House

and apparently when it was first built you could sit up in the sleeping baskets and see all the way to downtown (now that’s impossible due to the 4 billion buildings that have been built in the last 90 years in l.a between the schindler house and downtown).

also a nice l.a architecture fact: at one point schindler and neutra co-habitated in the house.

i’ll take some other pictures this week, and if they’re worth looking at i’ll put them up here.
and then next week i’ll get back to taking pictures of oddball buildings in l.a.

thanks
