From Southern California, public radio for your eyes.

Los Angeles from the Air

Back in 38,000 BC, sabertoothed cats, dire wolves and giant ground sloths grazed the Los Angles landscape that is now covered in a network of highways and suburban sprawl as far as the eye can see.

Today the Los Angeles metropolitan area is home to 18.2 million people, and the only remnants of the giant ground sloths are stuck in the La Brea Tar Pits.

I got the chance to fly over the megapolis of L.A. a few weeks ago to photograph the urban landscape near highways that pass by wastewater treatment centers and demolished public housing projects.

Los Angeles is an ever-evolving infrastructure that may seem a ugly from the ground, but looks pretty beautiful from up high.
