Lunchtime Photo

We’re getting near the end of my Overexposed LA™ series, and I can feel the sadness in the air. But there are still a couple more to go. This one is the Eli Broad Museum, which is really hard to get a good picture of because there’s so damn much crap in the way. So I turned it into a Photoshop lesson for myself, taking the picture from across the street and then removing the traffic light that covers the front corner. (It sprouts up from the green light in the photo below.) If you look closely you can see where I cloned bits of the facade, but for the most part everything lines up fairly well. And I get better at this every time I do it.

Coming soon: an open pit in downtown LA. Exciting!

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
