“…just [a] mundane aspect of their neighborhood.”
This specific alley caught my eye because of the interaction between the individual in the alley and the person in the SUV. These small alleyways around LA may seem unique and interesting to photographers, but to many people who live in the area, it is just [a] mundane aspect of their neighborhood. – Benjamin Y.
“Unfortunately, this particular alley has no elaborate history or exciting backstory. It is located in Burbank and nested in the midst of obscure warehouses. Perhaps its only redeeming quality are the eerie, yet restrained, warm hues struggling to ward off the blandness that pervades the entire place.” – Vahagn Karapetyan
“Late day alley”
” It was MLK day in downtown and it was a warmer day after all the rain we had. I passed by on foot and noticed the nice streak of light at the end of the day. I particularly liked the shot because of the kids in the background looking like shadowy figures hiding from the blinding light.” – Travis Duke
