This is a special feature for SC Bombs. Trains, train stations, metro stations, and the railroad tracks that they run on have had an important role in the history of graffiti all the way back to NYC. I want to document all the major pieces and murals you would see as you take the Blue Line metro straight through the East Side of South Central. Expect continued updates as I get them! You can check out the whole set here, and this is the same link where I will add more as they become available. Also, check up on the map on the main page to find where they are located.

I had to go up to Santee to start a program to clear my teaching credential. Santee is in the northeast corner of South Central. Being in the southwest corner, I do not know the area very well. They had some nice murals inside and outside of the school though.

I added two new photos from Century and Main and 97th and Avalon. I also found a great mural in Compton, but it is obviously outside of LA, so I did not use the pictures. I will post them here, but not on the map.

I went to Unincorporated Florence, which is part of South Central, but looks like its mini-city. It has a difference architectural style, and feels more like downtown LA. Right between the two shots I added, a man was killed the day before.

I am using a new Canon camera, and it allows for photo stitching. I like this picture of MLK and Tupac over a city scape of LA. It is one of my favorite finds so far. More to come soon! Here is another with MLK in it with Cesar Chavez.

I added a few from Normandie and King. This was an interesting find. Obama has a big following in the hood! There are t-shirts and art pieces being sold on various corners as well. There definitely were not any murals of Hilary!

It has been awhile, but I want to try to update this web site more often. I got some good shots today to check out, mostly up Western Ave. There has been a little bit of a drought in good new pieces. There is a lot of little tags and some toy bombs, but nothing that exciting. But South LA may be coming back. If anyone out there in the blogging world knows of some good spots, let me know!
