Excessive Heat Taking Its Toll on Los Angeles

Coming from Los Angeles, I do follow the news there from periodically. One of the biggest stories in Los Angeles are is the sweltering heat that is blanketing the city and wearing down its citizens. However, some citizens are basking in the warm weather, and the photos that result from the contrasting reactions provide a great visual stories and moments.

Although these photos may not be as visually pleasing as others, these photos capture the vibe and weather of Los Angeles. Some of the photos also do a wonderful job of capturing the emotion of the people, whether it is agony or elation, a viewer can almost empathize with the subjects.
