Thank you all for your comments. I never even knew this church was in Los Angeles until I drove down Wilshire Blvd a few weeks ago - many incredible structures between Hollywood and downtown Los Angeles. #8871932

Thanks Michelle. To correct for the lens distortion I used the Distort - Lens Correction filter in Photoshop. #8872060
