reader request: 3rd street promenade, santa monica

Thanks to reader Donald Weller for the suggestion.
To be fair, 3rd Street Promenade doesn't really need narrowing. As it is, it's one of LA's most popular + desirable places to live near and visit, with plenty of shops, street life, and opportunities for people-watching. But hey--why the hell not, right? Transformed thus it sheds all pretense of accommodating auto traffic altogether. Buildings feel slightly taller, the trees form a lovely canopy, and the street feels even more intimate: a tunnel passage rather than a promenade. See it narrowed!
Diptych prints available

Keep those location requests coming! I'll hop on the ole scooter for an early morning narrowing run + report back with pics.
