. . . from the archives #69: Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles 1988 / Melrose Avenue #38

Melrose Avenue - Los Angeles  1988

I took my Mamiya C-220 twin-lens reflex, the telephoto lens mounted, down to Melrose Avenue, inspired by the photographs of Max Yavno (urban, close-up night scenes). I made it down to Melrose and Gardner when I came across this tableau. I remember setting up my camera - on a tripod - across the street and taking a few photographs. (One of my fellow onlookers was admiring my gear.)

I have no idea what was going on, or who these people were. Never did find out, either.

(For blog purposes, this is Melrose Avenue post #38.)

Max Yavno: some images.

Wow . . . cool! You might have been in the vicinity when I took this pix.
