LA from the east

I have never had this view of LA before, I always drive in from the west or south and if I'm returning from the east it's usually on the 10 - or south on the 110, but this view actually looks like a proper downtown... Like something a lot further east, like a Midwest or east coast city. (I always miss Chicago) I know it seems weird to blog about a different view of a city...Pardon me, for being such a newly converted LA urbanite.... I did grow up in the south suburbs (aka South Bay) and the Westside.... But it just strikes me as so odd to live here for 28 of my 32 years
and to have never seen this view before.... I love the old bridge and lanterns, and I always get a little thrill when I see the art deco and early 20th century aspects of the city which I rarely consider beautiful. Which is one reason why we love our own historic neighborhood...
(and yes, that is a bug on my windshield)
