My bulletin board door at work - top is some fave images; bottom is mindful work content. Latest addition is the set of re-purposed business cards, inspired by hipster PDA and slip method. I wrote those up in my first weeks, and after a year - these themes hold up completely. Now posted for Constant Vigilance!

this past week marked the 100th anniversary of the los angeles aqueduct. on the northern edge of the san fernando valley are the "cascades" where the water pours down the mountainside at the end of its long journey from the eastern sierra.

the los angeles department of water and power (LADWP) power plant no. 1 continues to generate hydroelectric energy along the LA aqueduct, nearly 100 years after it went online in 1917 as los angeles' first source of municipal power. this century-old westinghouse turbine (one of five at the plant) is still in use to generate electricity.

Seen on my return flight from San Francisco to Denver. I believe they're part of this wind farm: ludb.clui.org/ex/i/CA4977/. I drove past them the previous day on my way to the city. They are impressive!

We were at Hilltop Park at just the right time of day.

The entrance to the Mediæval fortress of Cluis-Dessous is the most impressive part of what is left. Otherwise, the ruins of this very extensive fortress fail to impress.

More salt flats from JLT and Janean (months earlier).

 

The Tree of Utah is an artwork constructed between 1982-1986 by the Swedish artist Karl Momen. The Iranian-born Momen, who painted portraits of Stalin and the Shah of Iran early in his career, later studied with the surrealist painter Max Ernst, and studied architecture at the Kunst Academy in Stuttgart, Germany. It has been said that he was moved to create the 87 foot tall tree by the "vastness and relative emptiness" of the Bonneville Salt Flats, and that the tree "brings space, nature, myth and technology together". The tree's six spheres are all coated with natural rock and minerals found within the state of Utah, and the pods below symbolize the changing of the seasons, when trees naturally transform themselves. The costs of building the tree, reportedly over a million dollars, were provided entirely by Mr. Momen. The tree now belongs to the State of Utah.
