This Found Objects features some of the sights that I happened upon while out in the lively streets of Highland Park and Long Beach. Confession: This was the first time I’d ever set foot in that neighborhood, which is super close to Eagle Rock. I was out that way for a paper sale. Nerd alert! One of the designers I follow on Instagram was having a sample sale, so my mom, who also is a paper enthusiast (the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!), came to visit so we could get some steals. We did, but the sale was way smaller than we expected so we had nothing but time on our hands. We walked York Boulevard and were bombarded with interesting visuals. My favorite was the “Gremlins” mural tucked away in an alleyway so secluded that you could miss it if your head was in your phone. Meanwhile, in Long Beach, I spotted this vibrant melting ice cream cone and another sidewalk sign that made me chuckle. Click through the slideshow to see all the gems.
