Color Carnival #17
We had a very hot day at home so I thought I would take my 2 year old grandson for a train ride to Los Angeles. An hour later, I put him into his stroller and left Union Station for just a short walk across the street to Olvera Street. Olvera Street is considered the birthplace of Los Angeles, otherwise known as El Pueblo Historic Monument. It is a colorful village which features 27 historic buildings with a traditional Mexican style plaza area. The marketplace has handcrafted Mexican wares typical of old Mexico...a popular tourist destination. Like Old Town San Diego, a camera happy person can get colorful shots every way he/she might turn! Even the crosswalk from Union Station to Old City Plaza is very colorful!
