It looks like a laser beam but maybe it's the soul of L.A. being captured by the tourist's camera. Could it be?

Either way, I like this photo very much. You really have a very special way of capturing people, like you did here. :)

And that be red light that shines from the flash as it examines the scene?? You have a great title and perfect picture for the monthly theme! By the way, I love your poetic comments! #4742165

Exceptional! The red dusk line in the horizon is very cool! Looks like a laser coming from the lens :) #4747232

I love how you lined up the light of the horizon with the lens!
This is perfect for the monthly theme!
So nice to see you back in the BP "neighborhood!"

As in Blake Edwards's film ("A Shot in the Dark"),
this is a shot that doesn't bring problems. Only happiness.
