Lunchtime Photo

We’re getting near the end of my Overexposed LA™ series, and I can feel the sadness in the air. But there are still a couple more to go. This one is the Eli Broad Museum, which is really hard to get a good picture of because there’s so damn much crap in the way. So I turned it into a Photoshop lesson for myself, taking the picture from across the street and then removing the traffic light that covers the front corner. (It sprouts up from the green light in the photo below.) If you look closely you can see where I cloned bits of the facade, but for the most part everything lines up fairly well. And I get better at this every time I do it.

Coming soon: an open pit in downtown LA. Exciting!

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
