At one point in my life I had wanted to do a project called "The Park Between Us" when Richie and I lived on opposite ends of the Elysian Park. The 5 min daily drive between his and my house was almost enchanting. We were freshly fallen in love, and everything from the lowrider cars to the constant birthday parties to the piñatas to the gorgeous cherry trees in bloom and out of bloom were perfectly put there for my pure visionary pleasure. I thought this might make for an interesting documentary series. I photographed it off and on, but it never really came into full fruition. Anyways, the shots below of Pan Pacific sort of reminded me of that project.
