Hope Street Warehouse

Hope Street Warehouse

Hope Street Warehouse – Downtown Los Angeles, California, USA

This is a view of one of the warehouses on South Hope Street, between 12th Street and Pico Blvd. If you’ve been following Blog-Bisogno for a while, you may have noticed that I prefer capturing these old buildings from the alley side more so than the front facade. Alleys are more interesting to me. There are always fascinating architectural oddities from behind, and most people never get to see them. That is the case in this image with the camera facing the alley.

This photograph of feathery clouds against a deep blue sky was captured on the rooftop of Texere Plaza in Downtown Los Angeles in late afternoon. I waited for when I thought the sea-gull was is in exactly the right spot within the frame.

Not So Famous Photographer Quote #0208

Chinatown Junk

Chinatown JunkChinatown Junk – Chinatown, Los Angeles, California, USA

I saw this junk pile on a side street in Chinatown a few weeks before I made this capture. To me, it looked more like an art installation than a junk heap. The 3 wheel cart on the left also intrigued me. Many details indicate that it is a 1940s Cushman Mailster but I cannot confirm this because I couldn’t find a photo of it online. Doesn’t matter though. The cart is placed perfectly. I returned in early morning on 8/02/2014 and it all came together. If you want to see this scene, do it now. It won’t be around for very long in ever-changing Downtown Los Angeles.
