A speedy, time-lapse trip through the disputed rail right-of-way for Metro's Expo line - currently being built from Downtown Los Angeles to Santa Monica.
Starting about 6 blocks West of Robertson & Venice through West LA to the corner of Pico & Sawtelle! Yes, no kidding - this is West LA and it was shot on July 10 & 11, 2010.
The homeowners around this part of the line (Cheviot Hills) are annoyed because a train is coming, so they decided to sue the city to stop it claiming it's not "safe." You be the judge - a massively wide right-of-way sitting unused and tunnels & bridges already in place from the last streetcar line we had here!
Let's hope these NIMBYs lose and the city wins.
I made this film with a home brew steadycam, a Panasonic Lumix TZ-10 camera, Apple's iMovie and a lot of walking.

Interesting. The only time I hike in Cheviot Hills is on Rancho Park GC with a bag of clubs over my shoulder. _________________ "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here; this is the War Room!" Dr. Strangelove
