Excellent sets! Thanks a lot, kelbeen.

I´ve really enjoyed watching so many pics of Los Angeles. I appreciate the diversity of all your pictures, besides the high quality of the images.

Please, keep them coming... I want more from L.A.

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain.

You sound just a little excessive in the terms you're using. I've got something to satisfy your requirements. The castle of the Sleeping Beauty in Paris' Disneyland. No grit! Super clean! And how historic does it look, eh!

that's why I hope projs like Izek shomof's apt tower at broadway & 4th, barry shy's proposed new bldg on Main st across from the PE lofts, or GH Palmer's 2 bldgs on the southern half of broadway move beyond the discussion or planning stage.

btw, kalbeen, your pics help make this section of ssp very enjoyable to browse through.

When I look at LA in a thread like this one, my eyes linger most on those pics where the people and buildings create a recognizable city. Far from thinking old downtown is dreary, I immerse myself in its details and historicism. Particularly in the summer, DTLA is hot and the shadows are a welcome relief. I hate/love LA for this quandary of balancing all the various textures and moods, of having to drive everywhere, hating the traffic and despairing of finding a place to park, of trekking on foot through a dinosaur's boneyard of stand-alone buildings only to get to something so lovely I want to bow my head in gratitude. LA is a tough city in most respects but it's always worth the effort to know it at a granular level. God is in the details.

Goal for next LA trip: skip the west side entirely and only explore DTLA and surrounding areas.

Thanks for the comments, everyone!
I'm going to just shorten to 10 photos per post.
Since it's impossible to have an L.A. thread without Venice and Santa Monica,
I recently explored those areas and took nearly a thousand photos!
So that's the next set right after I finish with Downtown photos.
