Photo essay of Los Angeles' car-less – Click above to watch video after the jump
Professional photographer Diane Meyer discovered that Los Angeles, CA is chock full of people who not only survive, but often thrive in the City of Angels without automobiles. Meyer's "Without a Car" photo essay – originally published in the May/June 2011 issue of Orion, a bimonthly, advertising-free magazine devoted to creating a stronger bond between people and nature – captures Angelenos' car-less in vivid detail. For those of you without access to the paper version, Orion has created a digital slideshow, narrated by Meyer, of some of the pictures. Going car-less is not for everyone, just for those "who navigate this city more slowly by foot, bike, or bus-a typically anonymous bunch-[and] reap the rewards of human-scale glimpses amid the sprawl."
