Glad I caught your drift OK. I am sure you figured it out, but I should tell you straight out that all of the places I listed - except Hollywood and downtown - are socio-economic and/or ethnic enclaves. So much the better! That is what L.A. is all about; what truly makes it great IMO.

Also, 6th on the eastern side of downtown does not feature the average L.A. person (though it certainly features some of our sadder elements). That is affectionately known as "Skid Row," so I was somewhat joking when I suggested it. Ripe with photographic opportunity...just be respectful of the homeless, please. You having a camera puts you at a huge advantage over them, as if you were not already.
