Downtown Los Angeles (In Seven New Pictures)

I wish I had a photography style that looked like mine. I think it makes it easier for people to understand your point of view when they can see the prism through which you view the world, and a recognizable style is a great shorthand.

But I don’t have one, or I haven’t found one yet. And I’m okay with that, because to some degree it’s out of my hands because the pair of mediums I’m most drawn to — photography + artificial intelligent art — are both more inclined to curation over creation.

Now to the pictures. I find DTLA an incredibly interesting place to spend time, as it’s perhaps the only major downtown area across the United States that isn’t the center of a city’s attention. Sure the major sports arena and convention center is here, as is the Financial District and Little Tokyo, but post-Covid it’s not a place people spend much time. It’s very hit-and-run. In contrast to that, the photos below are from standing in one place for long stretches of time and taking a good hard look.

Most of these could be from any city in the country, and perhaps the world. But they’re from DTLA, and maybe my style is the secrets only we know.
