Enjoying beautiful night sky and light from Los Angeles Financial District from rooftop is amazing experience. The breeze of night wind blowed my mind. It was cold in that summer after all day raining in Los Angeles. This picture I took during my trip to Las Vegas on end of February 2014. I captured it from the rooftop of Pegasus Apartment, the building across the bar, using Olympus OMD-EM5.
