Craig Grasso, 1988

So, I've been searching for this spot forever, and weirdly enough, it came down to the cross street sign in the original Craig Grasso photo from 1988. It's on the corner of Guadalupe Ave. (which is nearby my house), but I couldn't read the cross street. I knew it was a two word street name, but that was it. Today, I went on Google maps and searched for two-word street names that intersect with Guadalupe, and sure enough, there was only one — Sierra Vista Drive. So I rode the two blocks there and found the sight of one of the photos that hung on my bedroom wall as a teenager. That's Craig Grasso shot by Spike Jonze on the left, and my shot from earlier today. The tree is much bigger today and Grasso is in jail for running from the cops in Vermont but fakie footplants are still awesome.
