Welcome to Los Angeles. The second largest city in the United States. The metropolitan area has a population of more than 12 million people. Through words and pictures the purpose is to tell readers what is wonderful and what is not so good about living in what many people perceive as paradise and others who are not so enamored.
The photo you see of Downtown Los Angeles was taken from the Griffith Park Observatory parking lot. For reason I do not understand the header photo is also pictured to the left of this introduction. Photo taken with a Panasonic FZ200 camera was cropped by the WordPress system.
The photo below is the unedited version.
The problem is the haze that never goes entirely away. It is a never ending issue in Los Angeles.
