Homeless Man or Old Rocker?


It was hard to tell. I was extremely happy to have my camera with me the other day as I snapped this shot through my passenger seat window whilst making a right. It was just an added bonus that the In-n-Out arrow was pointing directly at him.

    I vote rocker. Life in LA. Ah ha. Although, we have a dude who looks like 1970s basketball player that dances up and down one of our prominent street with a massive boom box. He was the best part of my commute.

    I just got back from my honeymoon and I went to my google reader and was so stoked to catch up on 2 weeks of your blog. It was better than all the issues of Elle and Glamour that I read on the beach!!!

    OMG! I just fell out of my chair laughing! Only in LA, right??!

    (Maybe it’s just cuz I’m super-tired from covering Portland Fashion Week and have been saying “only in Portland” all week long!)
    Love it!

    Hmmmm I’d have to agree with the others, old rocker. Maybe he was headed to a street gig and judging from the size of his legs, the keyboard was to heavy to carry!

    What do ya think?

    Is this on Van Nuys, off Ventura? I swear I’ve seen this rocker homeless dude. Used to come into Guitar Center when I worked there nine years ago. One time I saw him out in North Hills with his shoes in his hand.
