Today I tried my hand at some street photography. This is my biggest weak point - no matter how hard I try my street shots are boring, and usually not very good. These are about normal for me, but the subject is such that I couldn't pass up posting a couple (there are 4).

The first thing I noticed is just how many people use camera phones.

Now what do you suppose people are taking pictures of? What could have the road closed?

Close-up.

The explanation - I work in West Los Angeles and they are debuting a new movie called Transformers at a movie theater near my office (this theater is used quite often for debutes). They always spend most of a day setting up, but they don't usually completely close the street, and it doesn't usually include an 18 foot high figure.

Are you sure you didn't pose the first two? Very observant of you, and nice captures.:-)

It is not fair, other people have to go looking for interesting things to photograph, Harriet just arranges to have them delivered to the street outside her office! People in CA are so spoiled. . . :lol:

ROTFL! It is fun living where the sun shines most of the year, where there's always something blooming all the time, a place rich in interesting architecture, unique people and all different types of terrain. It would be heavenly if it weren't for the earthquakes, major traffic problemsand brush fires.

Very cool Harriet! Geez... I am starting to think everyone but me has a camera phone now. And don't forget to add the smog to your list!

Cool shots.

And that 2009 Camaro (look closely at bumblebee's bodywork, there are many retro-camaro cues that've included on the concept) is hotttttt
