Wednesday Vignette, I just couldn't delete it

This image of a built-in planter along the front of a building on Sunset Blvd is one from my December travels south, to the Los Angeles area. I almost deleted it time, and time again, but I never could actually get rid of it. It was mysterious...maybe all those windows?

At the time I didn't pay any attention to the letters above the plants – as usual it was just about the plants. But in separating out the image – featuring it – the letters took on more importance.

Thanks to Google maps I now know the building houses the Hollywood Sunset Free Clinic: "Hollywood Sunset Free Clinic is a licensed, FREE, nonprofit, primary health care facility which provides quality medical, counseling and related services to individuals of  Echo Park, Silver Lake, East Hollywood and downtown communities of Los Angeles. Clinic services are provided by a small staff and volunteer medical and counseling professionals and paraprofessionals who donate their time and experience in service to the community. Patients are encouraged to con tribute what they can for services they receive and to support the work of the Clinic. Hollywood Sunset Free Clinic provides over 31,000 medical, counseling and related visits to low income, uninsured individuals. Funding is provided by a combination of individual , foundation, corporation, federal. state, city, community & individual support.

Just about the plants. Obviously I was wrong!

  3. So interesting to look back through photos and learn new things about the organizations, histories, and stories of the places that house the plants. And then to realize it really is more than just about the plants. Yay HSFC.

  4. Not only are the providing vital services to those who might otherwise go without - they also have the sense to plant climate-appropriate plants to adorn their existence. My hat's off to them!
