    Hahaha true that, LA is known for their Air shops, for those of you who don't know or never been to LA, the air is so bad they have air shops where you can breath fresh air for a fee........now a fee to breath fresh air isn't that stripping us of our rights lol?

    Could be the air..More than likely it is just the morning coastal fog.? Compared to 10 - 15 years ago, the air sure looks better. There are cities with worse air.
    So how was the air going up, Fixer.?
    Fixer..Where is that, Mulholland Dr., maybe. ?

    Ha I was in NYC for 2 days I could just feel my lungs collapsing. The air is just horrible and the city smells of something I just can't really say of what

    On a trip to Athens, Greece a few years ago, the pollution was so bad that my snot turned from yellow to grey. I kid you not.

    Air shops? Wasn't there a commercial about that years ago, as part of some kind of anti-pollution campaign? It may only have run in Canada...

    And as for the ones in LA... Are you sure they weren't selling pure oxygen so that people can stop in and get a cheap, legal buzz?

    Beautiful pic, thanks for sharing. We don't have anything like that in north central Illinois.

    I know, LA had a bad rep. Go on, tease us, we can take it. It's sunny here and you're under three feet of snow.

    No, there are no air bars here...

    The air here is much, much better than it was in the 70's.

    As a matter of fact, today, the mountains are out!

    The Air Shop thing is no joke .. Woody Harrelson *sp* started one up a few years ago but it flopped I think.

    That picture is cool ... Too bad you didn't have a nice wide angle lens with ya
