Snapshots; LA Trip no. 2, Watts Towers

Hey lovelies, Besides doing the typical LA stuff, we went to go see the Watts Towers. It is not exactly central so you'd have to drive a bit, but it's pretty impressive. So this one Italian guy (Simon Rodia) hand made these with his bare hands. He made it over a period of 33 years, from 1921-1954 and it's over 30 meters. Simon asked neighbors to bring old tiles, glass work and ceramics to mosaic the piece of artwork. After all this time standing it has never been vandalized which is impressive, don't you think? XO

Oh and btw most of the houses in the street also have mosaic walls and benches in front of their houses, very cute :)
