Thanks DP! I like to capture the street views as if you were right there - a mixture of close-ups and wider angles.

All this pictures although very beautifoul remind me on somewhat controlled chaos. I am especially fascinated with those tall Turner cranes. They look so powerfull.
(one small off topic question: does someone know where i can find info or discussion on L.A. subway? thanks in advance)

This tower will definitely transform LA's skyline for the better. Finally a new skyscraper in a concrete jungle of postmodernism!
