INTERSECTIONS II

[dropcap size=big]7[/dropcap]th and Alvarado, across the street for Macarthur Park. So much activity on the four corners of this intersection. Some movements and actions so obvious, others unknown in the split seconds you walk across the street. Hustle and ambition on every side. I place a white backdrop on the side of a check cashing joint.

Thanks to everybody that has put their trust in me to take their photo. - SEAN MAUNG
