I took this picture of the Space Shuttle Endeavor on its final flight. It had flown over the Antelope Valley. I was lucky enough to take a few shots of it.

Looking north up La Brea Ave from around Lexington Ave, Los Angeles, 1919
In a still from a 1919 silent short called “Waiting at the Church,” we’re treated to an early view of La Brea Ave looking north from around Lexington Ave. The white building directly above the head of the motorcyclist on the right is the then-new Charlie Chaplin studios at 1416 N. La Brea built in 1918. And halfway up the hill at around the center of the image we can see the Bernheimer estate, which went up in 1913 and is now the Yamashiro Japanese restaurant.
