Los Angeles is the second largest city in the United States. I’ve been here fore more than 8 years and now it feels like my second home. I’ve seen so many things changed in the past years. Traffic is getting worst. The heat raises up higher with each successive summer. But not often will I have a chance to walk around downtown Los Angeles since it’s not the main area that local people want to travel to beside going to work. Since I had the chance to go there, I saw I love all the architecture of the old buildings.
Last Sunday I had a chance to visit downtown again with Mr. Hall and classmates from photography class at The School of Light. We all took Melina’s car there for a street photoshoot in Theater district. She parked her car next to the Eastern Columbia Building and we began to walk around. It was an interesting experience. Many people were curious of why I’m taking photos for. Some areas smelled stinky and I didn’t want to know what the smell is.
After walking around for a couple hours, I had gotten 242 shots in my camera. I love all the texture and details that my Nikon D610 could capture. The difficult part of this trip is the strong contrast of the light on buildings. Shadow from one building can make a high contrast on the building across the street.
