MYSTERY PHOTO:  Great fall view

MYSTERY PHOTO:  Great fall view

The Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles is shiny, curvy and a sight to behold.

PHOTO ESSAY:  Downtown Los Angeles

A recent trip to downtown Los Angeles found a thriving, multi-cultural city filled with a lot of things to see and do, from great museums to a lively Grand Central Market.  

Click to find photos of the Walt Disney Concert Hall, some great art from the contemporary Broad Museum and scenes from the market, where you could get anything from Mexican and Salvadoran cuisine to falafal, ice cream and fresh raw oysters from all over. There was even a shop that made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

We thought you’d enjoy this photographic drive-by from editor and publisher Andy Brack.
