While walking around Boyle Heights today, I came across this friendly rooster. He followed me as I walked along the fence of his house. His other feathered friends were curious, but those roosters kept their distance. So I decided to take a picture of him. A lady walking by with her son gave me one of those amused smiles like, what a loca/mensa, why is she taking a picture of a rooster? Hrrmph, señora, some of us have hobbies.
If you feel like walking around Boyle Heights and possibly have people laugh at you for taking pictures, join The Boyle Heights Historical Society this morning for a walking tour of historic buildings and the unveiling of the City sponsored Survey LA which “serves as the primary planning tool to identify, record and evaluate historic properties and districts within Los Angeles.” One of their pilot survey projects was in Boyle Heights.
