I had heard a long time ago that the light in LA has something special. I think it was Helmut Newton who said that. I can only agree.
Colors are some reasons I can not explain more vivid and the light has stronger contrasts.
Here an example of the LA light contrasts : a picture of a normal street (in California) which you would never find here in the old world : we do not build house the same way. Here we love bricks and concrete, in California, they use wood. Maybe in case of an earthquake. When you know that you understand why storms in the US destroy so many homes.
more to come…
