I love this kind of threads, they are attractive to me for it`s regular daily life focused view so perfectly describes the ambiance of a city. I lived in LA 10 years... I miss the downtown life... so crowded but at the same time so spacious, it`s so different to NY where the open space is scarse...

Congratulations, @pwright1, your work is awesome! Keep those good images flowing... Please..?

Best wishes.

Wonderful!! Great urban settings and such energy in the streets. In some way it reminds me of my city, São Paulo (Brazil).

I particularly like the pictures of high-rise, down-town L.A, because I don't recall ever having seen any images of it: I always think of Santa Monica, Hollywood and Griffiths Park when I think of L.A.

The best set of pics I've ever seen of L.A . I love Los Angeles though I've never been there , weirdly enough. Anyhow , the city's street life is way more intense than I thought . Great work .

Brilliant thread. LA streetlife is fascinating.

I love LA dearly for so many reasons. I always love to walk around there too, something that people outside of the city seem to think is impossible.
