Empty freeways? Never thought we’d live to see the day…
Man, oh man, how things have changed. On March 20, the state of California was ordered to stay at home and only leave when absolutely necessary, in an attempt to stop the spread of COVID-19. Though county officials have run into some trouble keeping beaches and hiking trails from becoming overcrowded while our usual lives remain “on pause,” local photographers have managed to capture a handful of the city’s most populated areas looking like complete ghost towns.
We’ve gathered ten photos of some of our most beloved spots in Los Angeles looking unusually empty so that you wouldn’t have to go through the trouble of leaving your couch or fitting into jeans again. Take a look at our beautiful city taking some much needed time to heal. ❤️
