Chasing Fires in Downtown LA

I had just flew in from Portland and went to go grab ramen with my friend Ashlyn, expecting a very casual day. While we ate she mentioned that a friend of hers who is also a photographer, was in downtown and wanted to meet up to scout rooftops. Always open to adventure, we were all about it. We all met up and started hitting rooftops all over downtown, however when we were atop a structure in the fashion district, something caught my eye. I saw dark, thick smoke in the distance, and almost instantly we knew it was a fire, so we immediately packed up and bolted over to the general area, and what we found was, well I'll let the photos do the talking...
