THE BEAUTY IN EXPIRED LA BY VICKY MOON
CA, Los Angeles-based photographer Vicky Moon - “Expired L.A. is an on going series of my exploration of Los Angeles at night. Every building is unique and captivating, as well as the individual color shifts each building creates with every exposure. I am fascinated by the drama that is created by the night sky and seek the beautiful in the over looked; I find the mundane to be extravagant and I find the beauty in the expired; This is my Los Angeles.”
A Fedora is classy as fuck. The Trilby is like it’s douchey younger cousin that is easier to get a hold of but still looks okay if you wear it with the right fucking outfit .
You have been educated.

I’m sorry if this “bothers” you but it really needs to be said. Look at the labels before you buy. These companies don’t deserve your business
New Orleans is a food desert.
It’s weird, I know, because we have a huge reputation for our food—but our soil can’t grow it, not after the storm. Everything comes through the port, down the river, on the highway. Other people bring food to New Orleans to sell. They build grocery stores in Metairie, downtown, Uptown, on Magazine.
But they don’t build in the Lower 9th Ward.
There’s no grocery store there. There hasn’t been one since Katrina in 2005. It’s an extreme low-income neighborhood that depends on a problematic inconvenient public transit systems to cross the city to get any fresh food.
They’re reaching out to local universities and institutions and offering fresh fruit and vegetables to the community—but they’re also offering hope.
OSBG serves as a school, a service institution, and a place of employment for teenagers and young adults from the Lower 9th who want to give back and get more for their community.
But that’s all going to go away without help.
The New Orleans City Council recently passed through new zoning ordinances, and this landmark of the Lower 9th (built by a married couple in 1955 by hand with cypress wood) has to be rebuilt to code. The renovations cost $100,000.
They can’t afford this. They’re a nonprofit barely scraping by. They put together an IndieGoGo campaign, but it’s stagnating at just under $3,000—$97,000 short of their goal.
If they don’t open their building before the summer, the community could lose this resource for good. No garden, no produce, no program, no building.
Please help them in any way you can. Donate a dollar, signal boost, share this post, their link, anything anywhere you can do it. This is important, and soon it could be gone.
Three—almost two—days left! They’re almost to $10k. It’s just 1/10 of their goal, but it would really mean a lot to them.
