I think I was selected by someone assigned to the task of cruising through blogspot's blogs and got the e-mail from Scott Martelle asking if I was interested. I don't know a lot about the article he's writing other than it's something about "Looking at Los Angeles through the prism of blogs". When I emailed Scott back letting him know I was interested I asked "why me?"
"What stuck out about your blog was the everydaynessThere were three of us there; me, Heather (heathervescent), who I've met through blogging.la get togethers with my husband (the real blogger), and Nate (Ensie), who when mentioned I checked out and added to my links, plus Ken Hively, staff photographer.

The market was lively and the produce stands piled high.On the Broadway side of the fantastically ornate Metropolitan Water District building I snapped this piece of work.After passing this piece of window display work.I do hope the Times article is good. Not knowing much at all about the writer's intent if I can at least base it on the three of us represented there today I think it will be something I won't mind having my name and photo associated with.
