Still-life with Pink Rose

After I enjoyed the conversation with John at the breakfast in Little Tokyo. We took a walk around downtown area. John told me that he has to pick his mother up at the Union station, and he has a lot of time to kill. So I offered to keep him company. Even though, I can't stay until noon but I can stay with him one more hour or so. When we come to near the third street tunnel, I realized that we were very close to little cable cars it called "Angel's Flight." It was about sixty maters or so, very short distance cable cars reach to a Banker Hills. The angel's flight is located right across from Central Market which a popular spot for tourists. I have living in Los Angeles for over thirty five years. However, I never tried the cable car before. So, I decided to take it.

It was quiet around the cable car area. But when we got to the entrance, A lot of people suddenly appeared and the little cable car was almost full. It was nice and short ride for three or four minutes. When we get top of the hill, we payed fifty cents at the booth.


  1. Dear Osamu,
    The pink rose is absolutely beautiful. Wet in wet in a background is gorgeous. Sounds nice you enjoyed a ride.
    Cheers, Sadami

  2. Hi Sadami

    I always admire a loose painting. I started a very tight painting, and now I am struggling to break tightness of my painting.
