General Douglas MacArthur Park: HCM #100

I believe that photography is an essential instrument in the planner's toolbox. However, the quality of much of the photography we see from planning departments and their consultants are lacking in basic principles of photography. So with this in mind, I plan to photography all of the City of Los Angeles designated historic buildings and places. The City of Los Angeles has over 500 designated "historical-cultural monuments" that define the cultural heritage of this city. A complete list of the Historic-cultural monuments is contained in the book: Landmark L.A.(http://www.lfla.org/cgi-bin/store/8967.html) or online
(

In addition, I have created a Flickr pool to invite others to create a photo database of historic-cultural monuments in Los Angeles.
