There's something we call the "Los Angeles Forum" here. If I wanted to look at these, I could scroll down, click on Los Angeles in the proper section, and look.

Nice pictures, happy you was allowed in certain areas of our los angeles state to take pictures, the last time I held a protest in front of the Chinese theater the police set rules, I think you did a great job.

"GOOD JOB"

Incredible photos.

But i still don't know what LA looks like because it doesn't have a distinct look like many other cities.lt's too much of a mixture of looks to be it's own look

Beautiful Set of Pictures
Since KOTH began the thread I will post more of his collections.

This exemplifies just that, with the following being Old Town Pasadena, a trendy, chic, /insert any word for uppity/, area consisting mainly of shopping boutiques (some higher end places too, such as Tiffany's), upscale restaurants, european-esque outdoor cafes and body shops.

So I rode by bike to the Fairfax/Wilshire bus station and boarded a Metro Rapid bus to the Wilshire/Western terminal to catch the Metro Purple Line to Union station. I had a bizzare ride there, being cursed/voodoo'd/etc by some eccentric Roman Catholic Hispanic lady singing biblical verses and poking people 3 times. :shrug: No thanks.


Union Station was crowded, as usual:



So I caught LA's Gold Line Light rail to Pasadena



I got off at the Del Mar station, which was cool because it was built below some condos


As soon as you board, you are greeted by this. Looks very Southwestern in appearance.


OTP has a rather healthy stock of art deco buildings, most in good condition, often donning new windows and bright colors--reminiscent of Miami



The sight of seeing old buildings being refurbished is soooo New York to me




The orange glow on the side of this building reminded of buffalo wings


The whole area was littered with little indie shops, selling everything from teas to iron


Some chains, too



The average street looked like this, except for the ones removed from the main street, which had lush, shady trees


Not long after, I wandered over to Pasadena City Hall







Permit Center

City Auditorium


This was something of significance....but I forgot. It could easily pass for a building in Paris or Buenos Aires.


A new library...


New Condoz


I call this the Iron Man building


Shopping mall




Aww


This one another of the Gold Line stations that were anchored by condos (called TOD's-transit oriented developments)

fgreghdfhg




sleek

Ride home

Koreatown

To cope with booming demand, Metro is pressing local buses onto Rapid Routes (hence 7xx route number)

I welcome our new overlords

Subway

Road dog--thanks


Peace!


Next stops: Silverlake, South Pasadena and Highland Park! :whip:
