LA may be split pretty evenly when it comes to the drone debate. Are they intrusive and possibly a security risk? Maybe, but it’s hard to hate on them completely when creative videos like Ian Wood‘s “Los Angeles” do their drop (to pun or not to pun?).

Upon each viewing of these captures, I’ve been delighted to notice something new. Check out the video yourself and possibly be inspired to explore a part of the city in which you’ve never stepped foot in or driven through, around, about:
“Los Angeles” is an encore to Ian Wood’s beloved drone journey through DTLA last year titled “Downtown Los Angeles”, view both below and many more drone missions on Ian Wood’s vimeo page.
