5th Street & Flower

This image was shot on 8/11/09 while riding home on my bike. I just happened to have my camera in my backpack with a tripod strapped to the side…always a good idea!

  1. This is a really clever shot. I like the repeated reflections of the buildings in each of the towers.

    I guess you are bike riding again with the price of gas these days.

    • Thanks! It was the reflections that drew me in. I waited two hours for the right light, but it was a nice day anyway.

      The cheapest gas I can find in downtown LA right now is $4.49/gal. and my 4x SUV gets 14 mpg. The only reason I am not guilt ridden over owning a gas hog like that is I only drive it once a week.

    • Thanks Jackie! Shooting in downtown LA is not easy. Security is intense and they do not permit the use of a tripod anywhere. I almost never shoot without a tripod so I have to be very resourceful. 😉
