I too really like your shot. It makes me slightly sad though; seeing such a grand looking building which seems to have fallen from grace a little.
Downtown LA is littered with once-grand buildings. There's a mystique about many of those buildings, which is probably what draws me to that area.
Just a block east of Hill Street (where I took this picture) is Broadway. According to wikipedia, a six-block stretch on Broadway contained the highest concentration of cinemas in the world in the early 1900s. Unfortunately, all of them are merely a shell of what they once were. If you look hard enough, though, you can still see a glimpse of the aura they once possessed. My goal is to somehow capture that aura. Before I try to capture that aura, however, I need to learn how to take halfway decent cityscape photos.
Here's a photo of the Los Angeles Theater which I took on the same day of the original photo that I posted. On a side note: I didn't get as much of the theater in the photo as I should have (the theater is sandwiched between two other buildings and it doesn't really stand out as the focal point of the photo) since I was focused more on capturing the theater's "Los Angeles" sign. That said, I probably could have gotten a better picture with a different angle. In any case, C&C welcomed on this one, too.
