Finding a jungle in Alhambra

[email protected]hambra: portraits of the City of Alhambra and the people who go about their lives here.

We found doctoral student Brett Bays' image of his friend Jaime Wong's verdant Alhambra backyard via Flickr.

The photo: "I took this photo of my friend Jaime Wong, who lives in Alhambra and owns a vintage shop in LA called Raggedy Threads, because I was so amazed with the fact that she had a jungle literally overflowing behind her house, and because she's an awesome person."

The photographer: Brett Bays is a grad student at UC-Riverside, working on his PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience, who takes pictures for fun, plays music, and visits his friends in Los Angeles whenever he has the time and gas money.

  1. Whoa this is super cool! I don't think anyone would ever guess that this pic was taken in Alhambra. Where about in Alhambra does she live?
