Snapchat and me

I first drove through Venice sort of afraid, fairly ephemeral as a danger area, told to me by others. I landed in the Marina, where some pals shared an apartment, and they even had an outdoor spa for the place. Not their place, but that whole section of apartments.

Once, at work, a colleague who was, while being sciencey, also was an artist, multi degrees, saw an ad in the UCLA Bruin, at some place on the beach. So together we rented some space in the building on the end of the road. Later I rented a place, and later, I moved in.

@ossobucotemp,
I love LA probably one of a few even though there are a lot who live here. I go to venice on the weekends usually but live in Pasadena. A lot of areas that were once bad around LA have cleaned up. I hear even skidrow has had a few crackdownsbto get the homeless off the streets. Although I don't like that part of downtown so I'm not sure how well it has turned out.

@Krumple,
We may agree on some matters.
Venice is my home, despite that my ex and I could barely recognise it now, both in different places.. So much history.

A friend and I annotated/photographed the walk streets.
I should probably send our stuff to some venice history site. We took a lot of photos as it was beginning to change. I still have the photos..

@Krumple,
I've known people helping re skid row (and had a friend who's father died there, long before that). I did some design myself at one place in time.
We seem to have varied perspectives.

@ossobucotemp,
I've an architect friend who had a studio, so called, right at the river. He connected me to some helping people. This was all volunteer stuff.
I did a design for an AIDs home landscape, front and back landscape, ramps, etc.
I'm unfriendly if that bothers you.

@ossobucotemp,
Is the thread's title, Snapchat and Me, your version of Clickbait?

@tsarstepan,
No, I haven't gotten around to whining about how a lot of us are now completely priced out, with Google and SnapChat and much else showing up there in relatively recent years.

I think that is what I was getting at about not being friendly - not against people, but to the many changes to what used to be a quite unique place. Of course it was inevitable, and other than us old time residents, newer people may be excited about the changes.
