The mighty Los Angeles River from Pass Avenue, 7:00 a.m. Thursday, September 19, 2013.
It’s not all this channeled and paved, but a lot of it has been controlled in this way because it used to be a shallow river that flooded fairly often. There’s probably some great farmland under the buildings on either side. (Think of the Nile.)
The two shots were taken about a foot apart, but they have a very different impact, I think.
What do you think? Do you like one more than the other, and if you do, why?
