I'm a photographer/Los Angeles explorer. I've seen a lot of things by the river and have taken pictures of a lot of things from wildlife, graffiti, people showering in the river, images of paranormal activity, and a lot of crazy thing--trust me.
I focused my attention on the urban part of the river from the 5 freeway to Vernon, and have wandered these parts of the river for the last 6 years. I'm also opposed to the buffing of graffiti in the L.A. River. Not only was generations of art wiped out, but also a lot of our history as a city was lost. There was Hobo and Pachuco Art dating back to the 30's wiped out with one stroke of a paint gun (all with federal stimulus money). I'm glad I got some of the photos probably some of the last proof.
