Reader photo: Religious debate in downtown Los Angeles

David Patrick Valera photographed this encounter on the corner of Broadway and 5th Street in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday. The man on the left was preaching a passage from the Bible, and the man on the right countered with his own views, Valera said. He used an Olympus OM-D EM-5 camera.
