The north hall at L.A. Union Station
. Generally, this area is barricaded off so you can't walk in there, but one can certainly look and photograph. This part of the station is used mostly as a filming location — you've seen it many times.

Here is IMDB's list of more than 150 films that used Union Station as a filming location including the aptly titled Union Station, starring William Holden.

Milky Way Over Los Angeles


MilkyWayOverLosAngeles_thumb
A composite of two images shot from Mt. Wilson on July 4 by Reddit user wuwu24
. Discussion here. He writes:

Never thought I'd see milky way in LA, but that was exactly what happened on 7/4th at midnight. After the fireworks subsided, the milky way appeared over the LA sky, as blankets of smoke from fireworks enveloped the city, effectively blocking light pollution from reaching the sky. This photo is a composite of two images, taken merely 2 hours apart, at the same location - starry sky at 12:19am and city foreground at 9:51pm.

Also, he offers a timelapse.

Abused American Flag at Miracle Springs Resort (1)
