|GARBAGE IS PEOPLE, TOO|
Fyi, there were many items along the left shoulder: lots of clothing (are people having sex out there or what?), an aluminum extension ladder in what seemed to be good working order, and as you can see above, a drawer pull.

So we walked up to MOCA for the opening of an exhibit called "The Painting Factory: Abstraction After Warhol." This didn't much grab me either (I'm sure due to my vast ignorance; Glenn, who studied art and is a complete museum maven
, was in his element), plus I get overstimulated by the milling throngs), but I did wend my way to some "older" (1950's-60's) work and became entranced by a Franz Kline painting called Alva (1958) and a Mark Rothko called "No. 9 Dark Over Light Earth/Violent and Yellow in Rose" (1954). The photos don't nearly do either justice and I couldn't find any online much better so you're going to have to just come to L.A. and see them for yourselves.
Here are a couple of shots of Grand Street, across from the museum, just before we went in.
