Riverbed cityscape

IMG_3974 as Smart Object-1

I found this view of the LA cityscape when I was commuting to USC, which surprisingly is only about 13 miles via surface streets from Downey. I liked that it looked as if the city buildings were sitting on this bridge.

IMG_3974a as Smart Object-1According to Wikipedia, a cityscape is the urban equivalent to a landscape. In the visual arts, a cityscape (urban landscape) is an artistic representation, such as a painting, drawing, print, or photograph, of the physical aspects of a city or urban area. So, for fun I also created a more artistic cityscape.

Unfortunately, as with many views from the riverbed, it's hard to escape the power lines.

"The life of our city is rich in poetic and marvelous subjects. We are enveloped and steeped as though in an atmosphere of the marvelous; but we do not notice it."
~ Charles Baudelaire
