5 Years Ago in Los Angeles

On this date, 5 years ago, I took the image on the left. 5 years later, almost exactly the same date, I took the one on the right. Both were taken very close to each other in downtown Los Angeles.
Makes me wonder if I've come full circle or is this the beginning of something new.
