L O S A N G E L E S | After the sun rise (Ongoing)

This is my second thread on My City Photos. My first thread is a night version of Los Angeles, and this is basically the day version. I moved to LA County this week, so I'll be posting more images of LA in the future. For now, enjoy these images I've taken over the years! All images are edited for this album to compliment each other.

Here is the link to the night version, but a lot of images are not working: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=209495

*Notes:
-Not all images are taken in Los Angeles
-Photos appear to be more gloomy due to edits, so don't mistaken landscape shots as "foggy" or "smog".
-Feel free to ask any questions about certain photos or make suggestions of where to explore next!

And last, if you want to view more of my photos, please visit my Flickr page:

Excellent!
You really captured LA in its true sense. Man you covered a lot of ground, and even still there is a heck of a lot more to see since we know the LA metro is a beast. Thanks for sharing as it's always nice to have some new local photographers around here.

I can't remember enjoying a thread this much before. Wow, you truly have a talent.

Honestly, I'm speechless. You captured LA beautifully and its essence. And I hope you are enjoying your new city. Just curious, where did you move from?

Thanks so much! Hope you keep checking this thread because I still have a lot to post. I moved from Temecula to Diamond Bar because it's closer to CSUF where I attend school, so I'm still stuck in the suburbs. But well, I'm (physically) closer to my dreams of living in DTLA (or any urban part of Los Angeles)!

Really loving these pictures of L.A. a lot. Some of the photos remind me of SF a little bit. Great density and especially great aerials.

Great job overall and look forward to seeing more photos from you.

There's still a very dark, dreary quality to the Historic Core. Part of it is the grit and grime and the other is the lack of modern architecture juxtaposed against the pre-war fabric like we're used to seeing in other cities.

These are great. Quite a few have the film-quality to them giving it that cinematic feel. Very LA.
