Your LA to Z

We will be celebrating our anniversary throughout 2010, but the yearlong fete isn’t just about the magazine. It’s also about the city—and you. That’s why we’ll be featuring your photos of Los Angeles all year long

Check out the story behind this week’s photo (right) by clicking on the gallery link below, then send us a picture (along with the who, what, where, when, and why) of something you’ve done to show your enthusiasm for the city. It could be your L.A.-inspired topiary, Theme Building wedding cake, or collection of local artifacts. For that matter, if you have an old family photo from the last 50 years that captures the city in flux—you on the pony ride where the Beverly Center now stands, for instance, or eating at the Brown Derby on Wilshire. Los Angeles will post reader photos here and print our favorites in an upcoming issue. The person who sends the winning shot will even get a copy of Los Angeles: Portrait of a City, the new tome from Taschen.
