    Los Angeles gets on average 15 inches of rainfall a year, which is roughly 35 days out of the year. And on those rare 35 days, the rain is comparable to a bird bath at best. Taking full advantage of my new place smack dab in the middle of downtown LA, I grabbed my rain coat, tripod, camera, and headed down to the streets. :wiggle: :noes:

    I'd really like to see photos of your place, planning on posting any?

    The stairway in your other thread looked fucking rad.

    cool apartments are NEVER finished, just post some :x:

    (I'm being completely hypocritical because I'm doing the same thing.. just moved into a downtown loft with exposed bricks and aluminum roof and shit but it's "not cool enough yet" :mamoru:)

    Although cities always seem dirty and industrial, I find some kind of odd beauty in them. I have always been inspired by city pics and yours succeed in inspiration as well.

    The "view". It's very limited :wtc:

    Is that bike rack the "DIY ikea bike rack"? I've been wanting to build one. Not enough space for all our bikes in the apartment.
