Friday Photos: Welcome to the New La-La Land

Tweet   Hollywood was once the dream capital of the world. Movies peddled glamour and fantasy. This was La-La Land where outrageous plots and larger than life characters allowed audiences to construct alternate realities — entertainment. But La-La Land has relocated. On Wednesday, President Obama delivered the commencement address at the Coast Guard Academy in […]

Friday Photos: ObamaNet Edition

Tweet Few noticed that a significant  erosion of liberty took place this week in a room in Washington where three Democrat party commissars voted to classify the internet as a public utility. This means that over the next few years, slowly, almost imperceptibly, the federal government will levy increasingly heavy taxes on the internet. In […]

Friday Photos: Totally Random

Tweet Usually, we publish photos that have a central theme. Not today. We’re feeling a bit scattered. Perhaps we’re spooked by ObamaCare, by what’s happening to this country. We are watching a national calamity unfold in slow motion, and we are helpless to stop it. In any case, here are a few photos, most taken […]

Friday Photos

Tweet Hypothetical question: Your house is on fire. Everyone is safe. You can run in and rescue one item. What will it be? The answer, overwhelmingly, is family photos. We are the sum of our memories. Photos help us capture time and space, preserve moments that otherwise would be lost. I seek the ordinary, the […]

Friday Photos: My Beautiful Neighborhood

Tweet Los Angeles is built for the automobile. But I make it my business to walk around, exploring unexpected corners of my neighborhood. Behind the wheel of a car the world whooshes past in a blur. But on foot I have the opportunity to focus on the deliciously ordinary. All photos were taken with my […]

Friday Fotos: Now I Know My ABC’s

Tweet Readers who have been following Seraphic Secret for a while are aware of our fondness for signs. In signage we detect various levels of aesthetics including grammar, fonts—remember when virtually everything was Helvetica—to the use of color. And of course, signs frequently stand witness to the health or deterioration of a particular community’s economic […]

Friday Fotos: The Seraphic A B C Book

Tweet I like to take snapshots of doorways, interesting geometric patterns and textures and, of course, my girlses footwear. But my favorite subjects are signs. Signs announce commerce, civic commands, information, and geography. The best signage is finely crafted art. Most often signs are, um, signs of the times indicating trends in fashion and the […]

Seraphic Book of A,B,C

Tweet I like to take snapshots of doorways, interesting geometric patterns, my girlses footwear—and signs. I love signs. Signs and billboards serve to announce commerce, civic commands, information, and geography. The best of them are finely crafted art. Most often signs are, um, signs of the times indicating trends in fashion and the changing face […]
