'Are you leaving?'
Mateo and Palmetto, Arts District, Los Angeles; April 19, 2014
Unfortunately for him, they were not leaving. They had just parked, so he’d have to find another spot.
A few minutes later, as I was taking more photos of these old bricks, somebody asked me, “Why is everybody taking photos of this building?” I said I just thought it was a cool old building, and that since a lot of film crews work in the Arts District, maybe some of the photographers were location scouts.
What I didn’t say, because I couldn’t find the right words, was that the old building made for interesting contrasts with the new people passing by, sometimes in shiny, red cars.
