One of the reasons I included Los Angeles in my long road trip was to photograph the most unusual Petersen Automotive Museum. And, I'm glad I included this as part of my itinerary!
Here's a photograph from across the intersection that I captured to give the viewer a perspective of the entire building. All of my other pictures from the photo shoot are architectural abstracts.
One challenge with capturing this photograph was dealing with the expanse of dull, ugly pavement in the bottom of the frame. My approach was to capture some traffic blurs using long exposures to add some interest to the scene. This required several exposures (later blended together in Photoshop) because traffic was so light. Just my luck...this was the only section in all of Los Angeles with light traffic!
The rest of my pictures are architectural abstracts. Here are a few of my favorites:

There were numerous architectural sites of interest in downtown Los Angeles. In addition to the Petersen Automotive Museum, I visited the Disney Concert Hall, Broad Museum, Los Angeles City Library, Bradbury Building and Union Station.
