I was looking for a place for a great HDR photoshoot. I think I found it here. This is the Bradbury Building in Los Angeles Downtown. It is located at the corner of 3rd St. and Broadway.
It was built towards the end of the 19th century and was used in shooting great old fillms like Bladerunner, Chinatown, Wolf, Lethal Weapon 4 just to name a few.
It's haunted since some people reported seeing ghosts.
The building is still being used by tenants and visitors are only allowed up to the first flight of stairs. The two old elevators are still working but only for use by the tenants.
I was with my wife Emi and you could see her on top of the stairs with her camera.
I like the color version too but finally decided to go for the black and white.
