Another round of downtown L.A. shots featuring our new photographic obsession: the jacaranda around Southern California.
Undaunted by the towering buildings and oppressive bridges, a tree grows (not in Brooklyn) along Flower Street. (Actually, several do; the silhouetted branches in the foreground are also a jacaranda.)
Around the periphery of the 7th & Fig shopping center, the jacaranda give shade to the crowds.
Outside the World Trade Center--the one in L.A.--are more of our favorite purple blossoms, and in the background flags wave on the grounds of the Bank of America building (above more jacaranda lining that side of the street).
