Default Architectural abstract

California Plaza, taken from near the top of the stairs beside the ill-fated Angel's Flight funicular railway that failed last year, killing a tourist.

Default Me too.

That along with the vertical building against the sky is what made me turn around and go back up the stairs. I love being a tourist in my own city, and look for stuff like this whenever I'm out and about

Default Great shot.

I like the curves of the railing, the reflections and the vertical angles.

Thanks for sharing.

By the way, do you know if the Angel's Flight will open again?

Nice shot Ron, you have a knack for architectural photos. I enjoy all your building shots. I guess you just need to get out in town and open your eyes up, there probably is a shot on every corner. You show great examples.

Thanks...

Default Thanks, everyone!

I don't know whether Angel's Flight will be reopening or not. I guess I could find out though...

Developing that knack is simply a matter of looking for the unusual angle or crop in something you see every day. Makes the mundane more interesting
