Occupy L.A., before and after
Early Wednesday morning, LAPD officers took action to remove Occupy L.A. protesters from the lawn around City Hall. These panoramic photos, taken from the same spot nearly a month apart, contrast the scene of a fully occupied encampment and the debris left behind after the police swept through, arresting almost 300 people. The panoramas were created by combining consecutive photos.
