Little Tokyo #2

“An interesting place to be…”

Photo by Stephen D. Friday

I used to co-run a blog about downtown Los Angeles called angelenic before I moved to Amsterdam last year. One thing that was always important to me during that time was to show through my photography how diverse and quirky the neighborhoods of downtown are to people who don’t know them. I think this photograph captures a side of that personality. It was taken from a hidden little strip called Wholesale Alley near Little Tokyo. Unfortunately that day the businesses were closed and their roll gates were down, but the view made it an interesting place to be nonetheless. – Stephen D. Friday

I was with a couple photography buddies and we were photowalking the Downtown Los Angeles area. I just happened to turn back to look at the street we walked from and took the shot.” — Ludwig Toth, via Flickr
