It’s like these latest batch of found objects found me, because I was just minding my business and — BAM! — there they were. As I mentioned in my first Echo Park post, this neighborhood has so much character.

See more after the jump!

I spotted this work of art on the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Logan Street. Well, I guess it’s part mural, part community calendar. I can’t say I’ve seen anything like this before, but I dig it!

There’s no shortage of these band tags lining the sidewalks. If I had a dollar for every similar tag on the street, I’d be a rich woman. I guess it has something to do with the prevalent music scene in this neighborhood. There’s plenty of opportunities to hear live music in Echo Park.

Say whaaaaat! This right here gives you license to do some damage. However you interpret said damage is up to you.

I wish I knew the story behind this black and gold sugar skull, or calavera, piece. Is it merely there to capture the attentions of passersby? Or is there a deeper meaning? Pray tell. A quick Google search revealed that El Centro Del Pueblo, around since 1974, hosts a popular Dia de los Muertos celebration, but I’m sure there’s more to it than that.

At this rate, part three of “Echo Park Charm” might be in the near future. Stay tuned!
