The spires, the great glass walls, the little spiky edges that create a sundial of sorts.
Los Angeles is home to many notable ecclesiastical buildings, from St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church to the Sinai Temple to Christ Methodist Church. Many of our most remarkable landmarks were built around the middle of the last century, and, as such, the Los Angeles Conservancy has been highlighting them as part of its "The Sixties Turn 50" push.
Part of that push has been to ask architectural buffs about their favorite places, including LA's ecclesiastical buildings. You can still put in your vote -- Monday, March 1st is the final day -- and pick the inspirational landmark that inspires you the most.
The list is a long one, with, oh, just under two dozen buildings. Have a look and have your say.
