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.

Just about the plants. Obviously I was wrong!
