    Nice. I lived in LA in the mid 1980s. I wanted to do a series called "The rivers and streams of LA" but life got in the way. Those concrete drainage ditches have so many photographic posibilites. I've loved them since I saw "Them" as a kid.

    I'm curious ... in light of the recent "cityscapes" thread, do any of you make a distinction between a cityscape and an urban landscape?

    Yup. I consider the image I posted an urban landscape not a cityscape. I'm probably not the one to define this though.

    Tough call. One definition is;

    "A cityscape is the urban equivalent of a landscape."

    I love the irony in this.
    Thanks,

    Great photograph Vinny. You may want to read up on the river's history. The whole city was founded around it, but for a century it has been essentially pumped dry to supply a portion of LA's water supply. The water entering it now is effluent from water treatment stations.
