Default Which Way LA?

I leveled against the tall building behind the coach. Picture is distorted by wide-angle.

Which way would be more level?

You do realize all the hot dogs have rolled down to the far vestibule, right?

Well, given that the verticals in the windows do not line up with the verticals in the building directly behind, I'd say there is little hope for this one, barring a well-written caption and comment to the editor saying that the car is installed/parked unlevel. Otherwise I would at least start with perspective adjustment to reduce the pain and see what happens.

Try leveling off of the vertical sign post near the center, in front of the car.

visual impression is that it is leaning to the left.

Please level it.

I think that car showed up on the Strip about 1976. While living in LA from the late 70's to the early 80's, I couldn't resist eating there time to time. Even the last time I was in LA in 2001. Good food-cool car.

Gee Charles, are there not enough moving trains for you to catch anymore?

BTW - there are some coaches and cabeese down by Disneyland on Ball that you could add to your RP collection.

I've tried to shoot that spot on Ball for years, HG - no decent angle.

True, it looks pretty impacted.

The Carney's shot is nice.
