Reader Photo: Urban adventures

On his usual Saturday walk in downtown Los Angeles, Gino Lomeli looked up and noticed window washers high up on a building.

He dubbed them “urban mountain climbers” and snapped a photo.

“I love to capture the heart of the city,” he said. “And the city’s heart are the people who make the city what it is.”

Lomeli used a Leica M8 and an old 50mm Russian lens to make this image.
