    What we'll have to do I guess is pick a day, place, and time. I may have some time this weekend in the mornings. I know Sat I have to go to Freestyle in the morning for a shoot I have the next weekend.

    Unfortunately the bridges are no longer with us. You see, they were photographed to death.

    I was just kidding, of course. They are gorgeous bridges, and we are lucky that they are still there with the way structures [do not] get preserved here.

    They are a little hard to get to,a lot of commercial property in the way,railroad tracks and homeless.

    Didnot think about those,do you think they would chase a guy off when photographing with camera and tripod?

    The Walt Disney building would be a good exercise for graphics and composition ,as the sun travels across the sky it must change the look of the building . Thanks Steve,might give it a try this week end,and check out the bridges too.

    Eaton Canyon and the JPL trail are both likely to be very beautiful at this time, due to the rain. If anyone wants to go for a climb and a swim Friday (my one day off), let me know. (See this thread: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum61/79632-hiking-eaton-canyon-penultimate-fall-tomorrow.html.) As the thread says, there is some dangerous climbing involved. Also, since I wrote that, I have been past the fall pictured, as far up the canyon as you can go. There are about 10 waterfalls above this one. All can be climbed over from the bottom except for the last, which is in a gully. It was an eleven hour hike round trip, without much time for stopping. There were five of us (two males and three females) and it was our first time, so it may be quicker doing it again, especially with fewer people. Going all the way up to the point of no advance would be better as a two-day adventure (or one and a half), but the swimming hole is an easy one day outing.

    Go inside the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Sometimes they will let you go into the main hall.
