A Car-less Los Angeles

[YouTube - Link]

Ross Ching's video, "Running on Empty" is a time lapse vision of an LA without cars. Ross was inspired by Matt Logues's E M P T Y L.A., a photography exhibition that showcases eerily abandoned streets in the city of angels. You can read about Ross's work in his own words, here:


Spectacular time lapse pieces have sprung up all over the internet. I have even developed some awesome relationships with some of the creators. However, the majority of them seem very similar — like they should be on the Discovery Channel or in a visitor center. There needs to be originality. There needs to be pioneers. There needs to be something more than beautiful shots. There needs to be a human element. There needs to be a story.

I live in the LA area, and I need a car. The nearest grocery store is about two hours walk from me. My bank is another two hours in the opposite direction. Thank goodness I work from home now, but many people here live maybe a four-day walk from their job.

We'll have the cars until we get neighborhoods again, with jobs and services all reasonably local, at least within biking distance.
