I just had to take this one, it was the first time I've seen a brother use an umbrella to protect himself from the sun. I'm used to seeing Asian women doing this. Although lately I've seen a lot of teenage boys using them.

Lots of unusual shots of DTLA, be it from the building or from street level. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks!

In defense of this guy, it was rather hot this particular day. Yet still there is no way I'll walk around with that girly umbrella. I agree a cap or a hat would protect against the sun just as good.

The first pictures were taken from the city hall, right?

How do you do it to go up there and how much do you have to pay?

Yes I took these from city hall, and its free to go up. The observation deck is open only Monday thru Friday, and only during regular business hours. The only thing you need to do is show your id, they they give you a visitor pass to wear like those in a hospital. Then they will give you directions on how to get up there because you have to take two different elevators. Usually there are others (mostly European tourists from what I've seen) going up as well.

There is one in the Los Angeles section, you should check it out as there are some really nice photos in it.
