From Blake’s Phone: Linoleum City, Fast Food Beverage Pairing, Ambiguous Switches, Huell The Mighty

Every week Blake and readers just like him send me grainy, blurry, sometimes horribly-framed yet always interesting photos of life in Los Angeles as seen through the lenses of their trusted telephones. Every week, never fail. Join us now, won’t you, as we take a look at the latest offerings…From Blake’s Phone.

Linoleum City rises like the phoenix. Behold:

Behind the jump: Blake uncovers a fast food beverage pairing chart of ludicrous proportion. Believe it. More phone-enabled digitally preserved moments and your submission instructions.
