Where did you take the photo?
Downtown LA across the street from the Gehry building.
What were you thinking before you took the photo?
Honestly, I was excited to be back in LA and downtown late night. I grew up in LA, and had to leave at 18 due to a whole host of issues, but every time I get a chance to walk around downtown I feel like I’m cracking a beer with an old friend that I haven’t seen in a few years. When I left LA, the Gehry was not around so I was trying to get a little bit of the old skyline with the Gehry building as the anchor.
What were you thinking after you took the photo?
I wish I used a tripod and took the picture from the middle of the intersection rather than from across the street. To all those who want the shot, take my advice and stand in the middle of the intersection.
What’s interesting about this photo to you?
Just like me, my old friend will evolve but continue to stay the same at heart.
What camera did you use?
Canon XTi with my trusty and beaten up Tamron wide, sometimes a few dimples on a lens builds character.
