my lovely in-laws are here this weekend and hanging out with the wife and i. its always fun having visitors, and lots of fun to have family out here. the weekend has been really relaxing and its been nice to just rest. well they bought me a nice digital camera for my upcoming birthday and so my good old gathering in light blog will be much more image driven. how nice to have pictures to help tell stories. today Dad and i walked around HP (highland park) the district of LA emily and i live in – as we walked around we just looked for fun pictures. here is a piece of a long painting on a whole buidling. HP has tons of great murals all over the place.
