- Park La Brea and Baldwin Hills
An extremely crisp, smog-free day in Los Angeles after two consecutive nights of heavy rain.
Looking south from Mulholland Drive. Just beyond the hills are the Miracle Mile, a portion of Wilshire Boulevard developed for car-based shoppers in the 1930s. Clustering around Miracle Mile are the apartment buildings that make up Park La Brea; it was built in the 1960s, and its sister property is San Francisco's Park Merced with identical buildings.
Further in the distance, Baldwin Hills, known for its oil fields and affluent African-American neighborhoods, is visible. Further away are Los Angeles Airport, Palos Verdes Peninsula, and even Catalina Island, all clearly visible.
