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.

One tends to think of places like the ones I suggested when one has lived in one place for four decades.

Its been six decades for me,how blind I am!! How ever since I drive a truck I get views that are not easily seen by cars or people just walking down a street.

And out to Jan in New Mexico, I was born in Abq. and I go home at least once a year. This coming January I am planning a road trip home and maybe shoot in the red rocks near Gallup.

Note: The webpage does not state why it was closed for nearly a decade after the reopening, before recently being reopened (but this one does: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angels_Flight). :D

Too bad I wasnt around, I live and work in Ventura, but make it back down to LA every weekend almost. Some good locations mentioned...there are a few more interesting places downtown LA in addition to the Concert Hall and Angels Flight:
