It was a glorious day in LA today [70 degrees and all] & I took more than 300 images all around downtown.
Here’s part 1 of the exploration [shot with 100% natural light]…

Our first stop was MOCA/Museum of Contemporary Art
& this installation, designed by the celebrated Japanese architect Arata Isozaki, took my breath away.
It’s space odyssey & the big bang combined!

Alexander Calder’s ‘Four Arches’ stood majestically at the entrance of the Bank of America Center.

Lesson of the day: the city has an amazing natural light :)
& the journey continues…

  5. They are all made wonderful through your eyes! I think I like the last one best with the composition of lines and curves and color and perspective. Beautiful work, and you’ve only scratched the surface! The people are fascinating as well, and I look forward to your people insights.

  6. WOW Agnes, what an impressive perspective/composition of the city! Very fresh and unique. The clarity and colours are brilliant as well. You have stepped up your game. Keep doing it! My eyes are peeled. :-D
    P.S.: My favourites are the first and last.
