Look at this !!!!!

Wow! A friend of mine visited L.A. earlier on in the year & showed me some images of this place yesterday. They’ve totally jammed up lots of my head space since then. It’s a place called Watts Towers, in L.A., it was constructed by a man called Simon Rodia between 1921 & 1955. He built it all by himself out of steel & concrete, with no help & no scaffolding! The tallest tower is nearly 100 feet tall.

I love it so much. The shapes & colors & the doodley freeness of it really exites me. It’s like he’s drawn lines in the air with the steel & concrete, & coloured it in with ceramic fragments & glass. I absolutelly have to go there one day.
