I am in LA

I am in Los Angeles for the PDC. Today I visited downtown. Tomorrow I am going to the pre-conference on concurrent multi-core programming on Windows and .NET. Here are some photos from downtown LA (click to see higher resolution).

DSCF0822 (768x1024) It is a big country. Everything is really big. For example this advertising for a film fills a complete hotel. The film wasn’t even shown in the movie theatres, it is now released direct to DVD.
DSCF0892 (1024x768) This is Los Angeles first fire engine. It was drawn by horses.
DSCF0840 (1024x768) The modern version. Today I saw many of them parked throughout the city, I am not sure why.
DSCF0868 (1024x768) Walt Disney concert hall, looks like a space station.
DSCF0872 (768x1024) Los Angeles City Hall, seat of the Daily Planet in Superman, destroyed in the war of the worlds by mars men.
DSCF0898 (768x1024) Union station
DSCF0900 (1024x768) Union station, interior. Also used in films as it still looks like 1939. In the waiting room they have sofas instead of chairs.
DSCF0905 (1024x768) Entrance to China town metro station
DSCF0910 (768x1024) Famous restaurant in China town
DSCF0862 (1024x768) Grand central market
DSCF0873 (1024x768) LAPD police car
DSCF0874 (1024x768) Problem and solution (America is going green?)
DSCF0864 (1024x768) Angelus plaza with skyscrapers in the background.
DSCF0835 (1024x768) More sky scrapers
DSCF0836 (768x1024) Sky scraper reflection
DSCF0844 (1024x768) Even more sky scrapers
