Title? Which title?

I haven’t pulled the camera back for a little while, so here is a long shot in Downtown L.A. This is a view of the parking lot behind the old Palace theater on Broadway at twilight. I’m sort of torn on a title... I like the vaguely enigmatic “Behind the Palace” or the generic “Lot Booth.” In my continuing quest to do less and get more, this one is mostly thin washes with rags and some limited brushwork to define the both cars and clouds. While I had reference on this, I edited, abstracted, made up colors and let the washes textures flow free as much as I could.
