Thursday - January 7; 7:30pm: Muybridge - Huell is off to Stanford University to learn about Eadweard Muybridge and his ground breaking photographs of animal locomotion. With the financial help of wealthy Leland Stanford, a former California Governor and founder of Stanford University, Muybridge used multiple cameras to capture innovative images of animals in motion. His venture, which would make contributions to art and science, began in 1872 at Stanford's horse farm in Palo Alto the future site of Stanford University.

THANKS for recording our cultural heritage, which is a part of important multicultural mosaic of Los Angeles, and California!
Also St. Sava's New Year 2010 (1/13) is remembered several years back (2005?), and I understand that you will be revisiting tonight Serbian Orthodox Church in San Gabriel.
MANY THANKS for your excellent work.
