Swap "You walk down Alamedas, either/or... you don't deserve to be lonely"

I'm a big fan of Elliott Smith. So, with my lomofriend @doorman762003, we agreed to make a filmswap as tribute to this great musician. So, he takes the 1st part in Osorno, south of Chile, to some pictures of Elliott, covers of his albums, etc. And I did the 2nd shot, walking down by the Alameda of my city, on a cloudy day, hearing on my i-pod this song, "Alameda", of the Either/Or album, trying to discover what was the feeling of Elliott when he wrote this song.

    great idea for doubles! love elliott smith too, such a tragedy like nick drake. the gentlest souls are often the most troubled ones. you just reminded me to post these shots i took at his wall on Sunset: www.lomography.co.kr/homes/blueskyandhardrock/albums/194838….

    @blueskyandhardrock Oh yes it is! I totally agree with you. Here in my country, when i was a teen, there was not much information about music and composition of Elliott. He was definitively, a troubled soul. And he couldn't resist all that. And the wall is awesome, i don't know about that :D

    this wall is like one of the sacred places for elliott smith fans because it was in the cover of his figure 8 album en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Elliott_smith_figure_8_cover.jpg. it's been desecrated time and time again by taggers and people who pretend they're graffiti artists who have zero respect for art and history but people always clean it up and restore it, which i'm glad about. when you visit LA, you def must stop by!
