Los Angeles, California
This panoramic photograph of downtown Los Angeles at twilight was taken by James Blakeway. On the left is Staples Center, which serves as home to the L.A. Lakers and Clippers basketball teams and the L.A. Kings hockey team. The tallest building in Los Angeles, with its round, brightly lit top, is the 73-story US Bank Tower. Left of US Bank Tower is Aon Center, Los Angeles' second tallest building. On the right side of the panorama is the white, 32-story pyramid-roofed Los Angeles City Hall building, which was completed in 1928. For decades no building in Los Angeles was allowed to exceed the height of City Hall.
