Downtown L.A. skyscrapers


I was leafing through a book on architectural photography recently and thought it would be fun to give it a try -- I like all the lines and angles. Had a couple minutes before meeting a friend for lunch today in downtown Los Angeles, so whipped out the crappy iPhone 3GS and tried to grab some shots.

Both photos were taken with the Camera Awesome app, although I ran the top photo through Lightroom to get rid of some extra noise. I was trying to capture the reflection of one building in the other in the bottom photo. I was framing a second shot when a security guard chased me off, saying no photography is allowed on the building property. Thank you, war on terror! 

 

The photos were taken on the northwest corner of 5th and Figueroa. 

Check out some of my other iPhoneography on my SmugMug site. And follow me on Twitter where I occasionally drop some nuggets of wisdom.
