I took a fun trip to downtown and stopped by Union Station and Olvera Street.? The latter is home to the first house built in LA and now has ethnic shops and food.

Returned to Los Angeles

Well needless to say, I have returned from the dreary midwest and slightly boring family 🙂 I got lots of relaxation and it was cool to see all of my family. But I live in LA for a reason, I don’t like the bible belt! Oh I did a little work there actually. Fixed up Mom, sister, and aunt computers. So I earned my keep. I also figured out how to get my feed/rss to show images as it was not doing it for some reason. I created a feedburner account (www.feedburner.com) then installed a plugin to wordpress called feedsmith to redirect rss output to feedburner. After hours of playing, I got it solved. Yay.

These photos are of my family from quite a long time ago. They are hanging at my mom’s house on the wall. Some of them are as old as 1900. I find this older photographer pretty neat.
