Blog: My Eagle Rock Daily Photo Digest

A weekly glimpse at my Eagle Rock Daily Photo Blog. My photos feature the Eagle Rock of my childhood, along with my perspective on the "new" Eagle Rock!

This is my first post on Eagle Rock Patch! I'm looking forward to sharing my perspective of our great town with the Patch community. 

I am an Eagle Rock native, having spent the first 25 years of my life on the same street right next to . My family first came to Eagle Rock when my grandfather attended Oxy as a student in the early 1900s, and the ties remain strong! Walking around Eagle Rock is like a constant blast from the past for me. Sometimes I see things that haven't changed since my childhood. Other times the changes are dramatic, so my recollections become a way for me to document the past and share it with others.  

Photography has been part of my life since childhood. I have taken thousands of photos over my life, so when I heard about the City Daily Photo network and noticed that Eagle Rock was not represented, I took the plunge. Every day I post a new photograph on my blog, which is seen by bloggers around the world via the City Daily Photo Portal.

This first post is a collection of nature scenes from the past few months. One of the things I love about Eagle Rock is that even though we are surrounded by city landscape, we have such beautiful natural spots within our borders. I hope you enjoy the photos and then go out and find your own Eagle Rock oasis!

Escott, the Oxy Hill image is beautiful, so painterly in a way, I love it.

Hi Escott, I too am impressed by your photos, especially the first one!

Thanks for the photo of the street I grew up on. I love the smell of the camphor trees on La Roda, especially after it rains. I look forward to more of your beautiful photographs of my hometown. I enjoyed visiting from my home in Ohio earlier in the month for my 39th reunion from ERHS.
