While visiting a friend to talk about designing energy efficient solar powered boats I took a few hours to check out the graffiti in Los Angeles near Little Tokyo. I started at Union Station and walked down Alameda street. Around 4th street (before and after) you start to find murals on the buildings and can safely stop to snap some photos with police sirens screaming in the background. Some photographers will hand their DSLR out the open window and speed by snapping random images, makes you feel like you’re walking through Detroit with the freaked out suburbanite tourists doing photo drive-bys. I felt fine walking around with a Ricoh GRD and GoPro in my hands while carrying my Macbook Pro on my shoulder and my Sony NEX VG-10 and Hasselblad lens in my backpack.
