Ummm.... It's sort of a weird request. I guess most of my friends are wealthy. I took pictures in a penthouse in Venice, which is expensive. I don't know what you want more then what I posted.

I agree with the other comments. Vibrant and unique photos which imho portray that cool LA atmosphere very well (although I haven't actually lived there to experience it, just visited).

I normally just start a new thread if I want to post more pictures, but since the pictures I want to post are insignificant in numbers, I'll just post more here.

I was experimenting with a 25mm lens when I took these pictures, so they aren't as 'intimate' as my last batch were. Ah, well. Have at them.

Loved the last pics! Now that I recaptured and saw your pics again, there's something fresh to them and the shots seem to have been taken from a commercial. Hope to see more! Cheers.

The Los Angeles you see in this picture is not the real thing, the city is not only the wealthy districts. Los Angeles is Chinatown, Koreatown, South Central, East Los Angeles, Financial District, Skid Row, San Fernando Valley, South Central, Little Tokyo, North East Los Angeles, The coastal area, the west side, Hollywood and of course all the areas where the rich people live. That is the real city of Los Angeles.

I have lived in Los Angeles for many Years and I can attest to that, I have seen the city really change through the years, and I can really tell you what the city is like.

Wow, this thread has had quite the revival in the past few days! Yes, I agree, I am showing an idealized version of L.A. I'm not capturing some of the eastside 'grit', only showing the wealthy Westside. This is because of two reasons. 1- I live on the Westside. Logistically, it is easier for me to take pictures locally. And 2- The camera shoots what I point it at, no? It is a direct link to my mind. Perhaps these pictures show what I wish L.A. to be- a youthful, fun, modern, urban city (not that it isn't already).

Anyways, Part 2 is coming soon, with a larger focus on East L.A. Hopefully I'll have it done by the end of June. Here are three more pictures as sort of 'teasers'. Have fun.
