Thus, I thought I'd give a shout out to my wonderful husband, David Leventi**, who is shooting in Europe but remains a dedicated reader of this blog – even from afar. (Yep, folks, it's official – I've gone "global.")
Below is a shot he took when he came with me for my last trip to the LA area. I've paired it up with a painting by Ed Ruscha of the same scene, since one of Ruscha's paintings set a new auction record at Bonhams & Butterfields just last week ($170,000!):
LA Times: "Edward Ruscha Print Sets New Auction Record"
**If you feel moved to do so after seeing the teaser image below, please feel free to visit David's work at www.bonnibenrubi.com to help him on his way to breaking Ed Ruscha's record (and, indirectly, supporting your favorite photo blog)... ;)
