Getty Museum - February 10th

One of the few places that affords a totalizing view of Los Angeles is from the Getty Museum on the edge of the Santa Monica mountains, particularly in winter when the layer of brown smog leaves the city. In one sweeping view you have the ocean, the snow capped mountains, and one of the largest megalopolis' in the world laying in between - the full spectrum of living conditions, sections of green the spot the landscape in between the freeways that bisect the city, and planes taking off from LAX.

The marine layer rolled in across Santa Monica. When you are in it, you just assume everywhere is grey and overcast, but from above its a different perspective, like always.
