THE EASTERN I


******************************
BEHIND THE SCENE: The Eastern Columbia building is one of the world’s most famous Art Deco landmarks. Located in the Broadway Theater District of Downtown Los Angeles this masterful piece of architecture was designed by Claud Beelman and opened in 1930. It climbs 264 feet into the sky and cost a cool $1.25 million to build. Originally it served as a clothing and furniture store, but was converted to condominiums in 2006. Johnny Depp was one of its most famous residents. Multiple Hollywood movie and TV shows were filmed here including the 1985 pilot for the iconic series Moonlighting starring Cybill Shepherd and Bruce Willis.


It’s rare to get an obstructed look at the trademark four-sided clock tower, but on this day I was granted special permission. Timing was everything. Strong winds were blowing across downtown and there was just the perfect mix of clouds overhead. The sky was quickly darkening with a storm moving in from the east. I hurried to set-up my gear and then opted for a long exposure to create a feeling of movement in the sky. I love the three-dimensional quality of this image. You can also appreciate how the composition juxtaposes LA’s more classical architecture on the right, more contemporary skyscrapers on the left and in-between is the fabulous Eastern building.
