Guess Where LA?

A few weeks ago I took these photos of the sunset and moon over the Port of Los Angeles / Long Beach. I took it from a really cool hidden park in San Pedro. Guess where the park is and you win!

No Tresspassing Full Moon

A couple more shots after the jump, and even more on flickr or eecue.com.

  1. yeah I like the peed… I saw a really funny shirt, but it was kind of offensive:

    “San Pedro,
    Where the Ghetto Meets the Sea”

    SP is actually not that ghetto, but still a funny shirt.

  2. Yeah it’s not really a secret, it’s just not well known to people living outside of SP. I actually found it randomly looking for a good place to get a photo of the port a few years ago.

  3. That’s a park? A bunch of bare dirt ground with a big red “No Trespassing” sign. Wow. Glad I don’t live there.

  4. Nice work. The where is eecue could be a fun series. Don’t you have a show of all your HDR work coming up soon?

  5. There’s a great dog park there. About to be demolished to make way for a local baseball league.

    The hill is called Knoll Hill. It’s a weird little lump between two streets and some train tracks. A few years ago the Port tried to bulldoze the hill and extend container yards further into the community, but the community pushed back and saved the hill.

  6. I was really surprised no one mentioned the name of the hill – It may still be written on the side in white rock. I can’t remember if that’s still visible.

  7. Btw LA Map nerd, that link doesn’t work for me… try google maps instead! M$ sucks!

    Sorry to hear it didn’t work. :-(

    I mostly used Live Search because the Birds’-Eye View let me match the angle on your shot of the end of the cul-de-sac, and you could even see the sign, so it was way recognizable. Can’t do that with Google Maps.

    Ah, well.

    (And I almost added a GoogleMaps link, too, but I was late for an appointment. Sorry.)

    Here’s the Google Map link.

    (And by the way, I found it the same way you did! Looking for photo angles on the port, saw a hill, saw a one-way street labeled “Knoll Dr.” coming down off the hill, and went looking for the other end.)

  8. Yeah sorry I didn’t mention the flickr group. I used to post in it all the time and follow the RSS feed, but I’m just too busy to keep an eye on it now.
