Following the path of an elevated line is a walker's pleasure. The light & the structure of columns & girders slice & frame & flatter. They wake up your eyes. Look this way, look that. Take nothing for granted.
I was walking in a hurry & I only had my phone, but my eye was drawn to this two-story house across 31st. With its tiled rooftops & blue-green walls it could be on a hillside over the ocean. There's even a beach umbrella! No Mediterranean here though, just Ns & Ws. Add to the villa the chain-link fences, aluminum awnings & graffiti & it goes freestyle. Everything's always in the mix.
