Urban Wildlife of Angeles - how it all started

Urban Wildlife of Los Angeles started as a hobby to help beat cancer…

Fatigued beyond belief from the cancer and chemo, I became very good at sitting still…

Bored in my apartment, I started sitting still in my apartment’s courtyard and front lawn…

Still bored, I started watching the birds, bugs and squirrels go by…

As I started to see more and more of what the birds, bugs and squirrels were doing as they passed, I started taking photographs to remind myself of the day’s passerby and their actions…

Having no other excitement to post about during my 32 months of treatment, I started posting my photographs on social media…

 My photographs became popular and people encouraged me to post more photographs…

Encouragement inspired me to get better a better camera and think deeper about what I am seeing and photographing

Which inspired me to create this site as a platform to exhibit more of my photographs, in a more organized manner, then I can on social media…
