    Walking in LA

    Jason King Nov 6 '05 4

    Today I took a walk through downtown Los Angeles. I started at Union Station, made my way up through Olvera Street to Bunker Hill to Grand to the Cathedral and back to Union Station. I needed to stare at something that wasn't a computer screen and see people who weren't staring at computer screens. Here are some images with captions when applicable:

    The Bradbury Building is one of the greatest spaces in LA, and you would never know it walking by the unassuming exterior.

    This public art Sculpture is baffling. How it got built I will never know or understand. It appears to be four men choking one another filled with bullet holes. It is in front of a federal building and within viewing range of the prison. Hmm.

    Some building by a little known architect.

    Olvera Street is the origin point of LA, and still the best place in town to buy a wrestling mask.

    A tree bursting out of its container and growing however it pleases. Photo-metaphor of LA.

      Is the Bradbury building famous because it is one of a kind in LA? I've never been in it, but all the pictures look like any number of buildings I've been to in Chicago.

      "Some building by a little known architect."

      Actually, that is the Walt Disney Concert Hall and it was designed by Frank Gehry.
