Work In Progress: Macy Street Bridge, Los Angeles, 4-29-12

Near Macy Street Bridge

    From interstate 5 North, I took the 101 North and exited onto Cesar Chavez Avenue. Taking the Cesar Chavez exit will deposit you into the Boyle Heights section of Los Angeles. A couple of left turns and the Macy Street Viaduct over the Los Angeles River is all yours. It is a beautifully constructed bridge built in 1926 and some 31,000 cars use it daily to connect to downtown Los Angeles, sending you by Alvarado Street and Old Town, directly into Little Tokyo.

   As always, the chiaroscuro of the day’s first light is my partner in image making. Yet, even with the fact that you share this morning with nearly 4 million Angelenos, there is coolness, clarity, and quiet. As the morning ages the light comes up quickly, and certain subjects start to melt into the mid-day sun. Heading north over the bridge to downtown L.A., Cesar Chavez Avenue turns into its predecessor: Sunset Boulevard, my muse.
