Union Station (Revisted), Los Angeles

L.A. Snapshot concludes after a one year photographic tour of the Los Angeles area. I've returned safely to Union Station, the starting point of the journey and it's been a gratifying experience to share my views of L.A. with you. Thank you for taking the time to visit, and feel free to browse back through the archives. Also, I'd love to hear from you regarding L.A. Snapshot, and also about ideas for a photography series you'd like to see.
(Watch for a link to a new photography blog, beginning January 2008.)
