    Sorry for 8 pics, but it's more interesting, One by one they aren't really special, but altogether you get the feel for the place. Let me know if I am breaking any rule by posting 8

    Cool. I'm not into taking this type of photo nowadays, and don't really have an appreciation, but like you said altogether these make for a compelling portrait of a down and out place. Well done.

    The interesting thing Jim is that Cypress is a very well to do town, a rather sought after location on the edge of Orange County here. The houses there are $100,000 to $200,000 more on average then just a mile down the road in neighboring cities. Dave did a great job in finding a small pocket of the old Cypress in these photos.

    Thanks everyone !
    This is a weird find, its literally the last pocket of the older era of clean, safe sleepy cities in OC,
    (Garden Grove, midway city, westminster, laPalma, buena park, etc... they used to be quiet and safe and clean, now they are almost all noisy and dirty, cypress is still one of the nicest ones.
