One Big Donut

La Puente, CA -- The art of vernacular architecture is somewhat lost. I would image one reason for not building structures in the form of their product or service is due in part of city inspectors. It practically takes an act of congress to have a home addition approved in Los Angeles, let alone a two-story shoe-shaped building selling Nikes.

I happened upon this place by accident. I am a sucker for doughnuts (sometimes spelled "donut") but this time I fought my weakness and took the shot rather than a chocolate-covered glazed.

My brother and I used to drive by this place all the time but never stopped. When we moved, I wish I had.

i had a bad experience there a year ago. Donut was good, but the service was sub-par.

I love this shot! It beats driving thru a redwood tree. Go back, get a donut!
