The last time I spoke with Stephanie she’d just gotten out of the hospital. Stephanie fell ill and the doctors told her if she didn’t quit smoking crack, she was going to die. She’d been using for over 30 years, she said, and she had no plans of giving it up. More recently she fell ill again. She tells me she drank a bunch of water and soon after began wheezing and choking. Her lungs filled up with the liquid and she was drowning. Stephanie went unconscious and passed out on Gladys street where a fellow Skid Row resident called 911. She woke up in the hospital the next day and decided it was time to get sober. This is Stephanie with a 120 days of sobriety under her belt. She’s put on 30 pounds and has a new boyfriend. She says she can’t remember ever feeling this good. A fog has lifted off her, she says, and she’s thankful for that day she almost died. She feels it has given her a new chance at life. Stephenie is living and working at the Union Mission for now and working on getting into permanent housing. #skidrowlosangeles#skidrowla#skidrow#losangeles#dtla#downtownlosangeles#streetphotography#suitcasejoe

Port Blues -- I caught a nice blue hour after sunset the other night in the Port of Los Angeles with @elcocrowe The storm systems of the past few weeks have provided us with low clouds and drama which really help to bring landscape photographs to life. Really happy that they fixed the timer on the blue lights of this bridge. for a few months the timer was off and the lights weren't coming on until well after sunset. There's something about the blue lights along this bridge that help give it character.

The snack aisle @commonsage.sf on Polk Street reminds me of Yaohan Plaza in Japantown LA. I ate lots of shrimp chips, super cola and botan rice candy growing up. So many colors and flavors! Now all I need to find is THE perfect teriyaki chicken bowl. Is Yaohan still around? #throwback#snacks#dtla#lanative#japanesefood
