Cool! Quite a nice mix of LA faces. I've been there one month ago and one detail that I remember that I see in the pictures is the old Art Deco buildings. It's very different from the East Coast Art Deco. Somehow, I feel it more like a darker style than the colourful of the West coast and Miami. Still looks gorgeous. And I also fell in love with the city aswell.
