Does anyone think that this would make a better park than incomplete condo complex?

Sunday is family day at the Lake and it’s no different in the bird world. Being a night owl and working days, weekends are the only times I get the chance to stop by the Lake and take in all that’s going on. But what I’ve been hearing from those who have the determination to make it down there for early a.m. walks is that there are some sights to been seen… these are the hours that the birds run the lake.

This week we would like to welcome Dale Dreiling as Echo Park Now’s first guest blogger.  I couldn’t say it better myself so I shall quote from Dale’s website. Dale “is a visual artist whose life and work reflect the unique spirit of the coastal west. Raised in Ventura, California, he received a BFA in painting from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2001. His work has been exhibited in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Detroit, Portland, Seattle, Oakland & Nakano, Japan. He has designed & illustrated for Converse, Urban Outfitters, Upper Playground, LA Record, HIT+RUN, FunNotFame, Saiko Headwear, Bee House Records & the LA Beat Swap Meet.” Dale is also a resident of Echo Park so we have asked him to come on board this week to share some musings on the neighborhood. He has his own blog here where you can learn more about his art and his life. You can see some of Dale’s paintings at Chango coffee shop through April 4th. Chango is located at 1559 Echo Park Ave.
