If you are in Los Angeles, don’t miss the historic downtown area. It’s a wonderful mix of modern and historic buildings dating from the 1800’s to present day. I like this photograph for the color and variety of textures and architecture. The streetlamp you see in the left side of the photograph is a style from the early 1900’s and were placed throughout the neighborhood in the 1920’s. I think they add a lot of charm and character. This photograph was taken on Main Street, across from the Cathedral of St. Vibiana another historic landmark of downtown Los Angeles.
