Hipstamatic & downtown Los Angeles

That's unlovely Broadway Street in downtown Los Angeles, a street that begging for some gentrification -- there's easily a dozen old movie palaces that are either closed, rarely used or have been converted to flea markets. 

Depressing for the nation's second-largest city? Sure! On the other hand, it sure is photogenic! 

The above photo was taken with a great combination for urban scenes on the Hipstamatic app for iPhone - the Libatique 73 lens and the D-type plate film. Try this somewhere with a lot of buildings.

Killing time at work? A few other recent blog posts that may interest you: Bridal shop on Broadway, Reflections on a duck pond, Los Angeles subway in black and white, Summit Lake in the Eastern Sierra and Snapshot of a dog going to the vet

Stole your mom's credit card and want to stick it to the old lady who ruined your life? Buy some prints of my work from my SmugMug site! Hint: the metallic paper is the way to go even if it costs a little more. 

Like social media? I think it's mostly stupid but I have a Twitter account anyway because everyone else does and I'm a follower, not a leader.
