"This is my Los Angeles, show me yours," is all the simple yet alluring Reddit link title says. And my how the people are revealing themselves. Well, not themselves (dirty mind), their special places. Okay, that still sounds dirty, let's try again. People are posting some glamours, some not so glamourous, but all very interesting portraits of their neighborhoods and treasured places around Los Angeles. Submitted by user GrandMoffJed, the thread, at this moment, has 165 replies.

It's now sort of like a game where the other Redditors try to guess where each photo is taken and see if they're neighbors, and/or if they know each other. So far my favorite "Hey we're in the same neighborhood look for me" reply came from the enthusiastic taco lover that goes by dignifydiction who said, "Do you go to Tacos Al Pastor on the corner of Kingsley & Santa Monica? I love that place. If you ever see a lanky white dude walking around there, say hi!"

It is reassuring to know that not all online conversations end with a stabbing. Sometimes they end with snacks.
