Sometimes walking around Los Angeles can feel like you’ve stepped back in time. There is a scene in the cult fim (500) Days of Summer in which the two characters, Tom and Summer, are walking around downtown LA. Tom is explaining how most people don’t realize how beautiful the architecture is in Los Angeles.
“There’s so much beauty here. Sure the street level isn’t much to look at, but if you look up, there’s some exciting stuff going on. If it were up to me, I’d get people to notice.”
This is followed by a lovely little montage of some of LA’ most stunning Art Deco buildings, set to the Temper Trap’s “Sweet Disposition”. For your multi-sensory pleasure, we’ve included a link to the song for you to listen to as you walk through our Los Angeles Art Deco photo diary.
