lense elevation: downtown la at night

A true staple of accomplishing dreams, I have truthfully wanted these shots since I first started free-running through the downtown streets of LA.  Like a gazelle in a free, wide-open expanse of landscape, I treat every obstacle the city throws in my path as a personal challenge to conquer.

If I don't dominate that 10 ft. gap/ winding staircase/ raised flower pot/ gorilla jump over ever trash can today....than by the will of man, I will certainly dominate you tomorrow!

One of my many goals to conquer has been to climb atop the beautifully seducing rooftops of LA's famous downtown skyline.........undetected!  Now although the roof of the luxurious Biltmore Hotel isn't exactly the tallest structure around, I saw an opportunity to climb on-top of a roof, so climb I did.

Steadily ascending, floor by floor via a sketchy fire escape, I reached my destination in stealth with camera in tow.

LA's downtown rooftops 0:  Germ the worm: 1  mark it!


Thanks for reading!
