I was pulled into the project late Monday. Lorena was wrapping up the visuals and handed me a mockup and a spreadsheet with starts and ends of the Lunar New Year, which doesn’t correlate with the start and finish of the normal year.
I quickly made it interactive and we created a hit of the day.
- Story: Fancy feathers rule at pigeon fans’ version of the Westminster dog show
- Video: Pigeons that go beyond the sidewalk
- Pigeonpile: Fancy pigeons — not your average bird
I got the privilege to write a Column 1 on the Westminster dog show of pigeons, the National Pigeon Association’s Grand National. Pigeon fanciers are kooky folks, but so darn nice!
A local pigeon photographer gave us permission to publish his photos. Instead of a “facepile” we’re calling it a “pigeonpile.”
Maloy Moore and I spent 10 months entering details from a hand written ledger of Los Angeles County’s cremated. Those that aren’t picked up, about three-quarters, end up buried in one mass grave after three years. The spreadsheet and interactive graphic went up first. Story came out Sunday and a follow-up “how we did it” Monday.
