The lighter side of life in Los Angeles

Photographer Mel Melcon has long been attracted to some of the stranger sites L.A. offers, and as you can see, the city offers plenty of opportunities for bizarre scenes.

As for the spectacular arrest of the amazing Spider-Man above, Melcon recounts the scene:

As they were about to put the handcuffs on the man, one of the officers grabbed my arm and stopped me from taking photos. I guess he thought it would be bad public relations if I caught them in the act of arresting a superhero.

Look through some more photographic oddities over at Framework.
