Kenn Lee was in Chile this summer to visit San Pedro de Atacama. The Lake Balboa resident also hoped to cross into Bolivia to see the Salar de Uyuni, the world's largest salt flat. Snow, tour operator issues and immigration officials thwarted that plan, and Lee's Bolivia excursion was trimmed to about 15 minutes. But before he was turned back at the border, he happened upon this abandoned bus. "It looked strange, colorful, so full of texture," Lee said. He used a Nikon D90. View past photos we've featured .

At the end of a recent five-day business trip, my husband and I checked out of what we had always considered the long-term parking at Lindbergh Field. The fee was $84 ($12 for the first day and $18 per day afterward)! The facilities at the airport are increasingly inadequate and now parking is impossible. The Port Authority suggests that "the most convenient way to arrive at the airport is by obtaining a ride from a friend, or taking a cab, shuttle van or bus." That implies that people fly only occasionally, for pleasure.

The Parks and Recreation Commission tonight will discuss long-range plans for parks in the city. Recreation officials are asking for help from the public to decide how to invest several hundred thousand dollars in local recreation facilities. "We want people to let the commission know what they think is of vital importance," Parks Manager Kerry Bartelt said.

Although parking at one of Southern California's small airports may not instill as much fear as the prospect of parking at LAX, three private park-and-ride companies have emerged in Burbank, Ontario and Irvine to compete with long-term lots owned by those cities. In Long Beach, the airport lot remains a near monopoly. Economy parking at Burbank Airport costs $1 for the first four hours, then $2 an hour up to a maximum of $8 a day. The airport operates two long-term lots.

The city Department of Airports will discontinue its West Los Angeles Flyaway bus service to Los Angeles International Airport on Friday because of insufficient ridership. The Flyaway has provided transportation to the airport for $3.25, considerably less than cab fare. The Westside Flyaway has attracted only about 337 riders a day, compared to 1,853 from the San Fernando Flyaway near Van Nuys Airport, according to department spokesman Jack Francois.

During his early years, Armand Fernandez shed his last name (in deference to Van Gogh who signed his work "Vincent") and the final letter of his first name (in emulation of a printer's error). Stripped down to Arman, he soon began accumulating objects--from violins to gas masks--and turning masses of them into artworks. "Long Term Parking," his most imposing feat, is a tower of 60 cars on the outskirts of Paris.

Burbank Airport officials have agreed to dramatically increase parking fees at lots convenient to the terminal to encourage more travelers to use remote parking lots and relieve airport parking and traffic congestion. Maximum daily parking rates will increase Sept. 1 from $5 to $24--more than double the rate charged by any other Southern California airport, officials said.

The business of business is satisfying the customer. If it succeeds, the profits come as a byproduct. Unfortunately, many businesses forget that. Somehow to them, profits come first, the customer second. And the rules they establish for dealing with customers make that crystal clear. A good illustration is a little episode recently at Reuben's Restaurant in Woodland Hills.

All four levels of John Wayne Airport's northwest parking structure (garage A1) have been temporarily closed as part of a continuing seismic strengthening project. During the closure, customers are advised to use the east parking structure (garages A2 and B2), the southwest parking structure, curbside valet parking or the off-site, long-term parking on Main Street.

Several flights at San Francisco International Airport were diverted away from a runway near the long-term parking lot after an unidentified man allegedly fired gunshots in the air, officials said. The man, who may have lived with his family in a motor home on the lot, was taken into custody by airport police, airport spokesman Ron Wilson said. No one was injured and no property was damaged, Wilson said.
