The Streets of Los Angeles
I taught a 2-day street photography workshop in Los Angeles last week. I had the honor to co-lead the workshop with fellow photographer, author and podcaster Ibarionex Perello (the amazing voice behind The Candid Frame). Ibarionex lives in Los Angeles.
LA was new to me, and I found myself seeing the streets mostly in color. Although most of my work is B&W, I don’t believe that one should get stuck in anything. Some images work both ways (and you will see some below that I posted in B&W on social media earlier) but many are clearly stronger in color.
The LA ‘fashion district’ is vibrant. The sense of fashion is debatable but I’m sure there is something for everyone 😉
On Broadway Street we stumbled upon an organized protest for immigration rights. Which gave us great additional photo opportunities:

Downtown LA is full of old buildings such as these:
The business district, only a few blocks away, is like a different world:
Union Station was one of my favorite spots to shoot. The light coming through the windows in the late afternoon was just amazing:
I hope you enjoyed the selection, please leave a comment!
