I visited the California Science Center a couple of times during the past year. Located in Exposition Park, south of downtown Los Angeles, the 400,00 sq ft museum hosts permanent installations as well as special exhibits related to all areas of the sciences from bacteria to outer space. It is also home to the Space Shuttle Endeavour and a seven-story IMAX theater.
Between the main museum and the IMAX theater is a plaza area where I took these photos. I was just having fun shooting some abstract and miscellaneous images.
This is a series of selfies reflected in some colorful ceramic tiles installed on the exterior of the IMAX theater.
Steps leading out of the plaza area.
Looking up to the ceiling of the plaza area and towards the main museum building.
Granite slabs which create a seating area or a place to run and jump depending on your age group. Oops, my copyright covered up Victor Hugo’s name.
On a very hot day, a place to cool off and be purple.
The plaza area reminds me of the 1970s and I thought that was when it was installed but the facility opened in 1998 so obviously I am wrong. But if time is non-linear it can be the 70s in the 90s and 2015 too!
