To get to the Gerry Building or the Cal Mart you have to drive through a lot of muck in LA. Years ago I noticed that if I take my eyes off the street level there are some pretty amazing old buildings. I collide into people when I am walking through Downtown LA because I am always looking up. It’s so pretty. I wonder about what they were before they became tenements or lofts. Mostly I think about the craftsmen and masons and how they worked before technology and modernism. Such art they created. There are few pretty new buildings. Many have the original signage remaining. I have an affection for old signs. These pics were taken from the car at the end of my VERY long day. Crappy camera + moving car = These photos.
