The commercial and economic hub of California, Downtown Los Angeles is an area best avoided during the week...unless of course you're prepared to spend hours inching along in ridiculous traffic. I discovered recently, however, that on the weekends Downtown takes on a considerably different persona. On a Saturday or Sunday, the typical Downtown LA is replaced by her calmer, less neurotic, and curiously prettier twin. I am pretty positive that I've been in this area on the weekend before, so I am not sure why it struck me as so breathtakingly beautiful. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I had just visited MOCA so I was in a particularly artsy mood...I don't know. In any case, I was entranced by the serenity and the light and did my best to capture pictures which reflected this. I also stumbled upon the Grand Central Market. Wow what a cool slice of the city. Who knew that this gem was hiding out right under my nose this whole time. Perhaps I was blinded by the pretentious hipster I pretend to be every time I go to Angels Knoll.
Until next time,
