This is a Valentine to the center of Escott O. Norton's home city: Downtown Los Angeles.
Shot entirely on his iPhone, these photos were taken mostly over a 2 day span during his Jury Duty lunch breaks. All of the photographs were taken from public property or from areas that can be accessed for free.
Downtown Los Angeles is rich in Architectural diversity and history. Don't let outsiders say Los Angeles doesn’t appreciate its historic Architecture, Just look at the stunning restoration of City Hall as an example. While there are photos of beautiful buildings that appear to be abandoned, they have not been torn down, so there is hope that they too will be reborn. There are also some glorious examples of careful restorations featured here.
Enjoy the book, and the next time you are in town, take your own tour!
