If you use any of these photos for commercial purposes I assume you'll discuss that with me

These were shot with a Nikon D70 - using lens (1) AF-S Nikkor 18-70 mm 1:35-4.5G ED, or (2) AF Nikkor 70-300mm telephoto, or after 5 June 2006, (3) AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor, 55-200 mm f/4-5.6G ED. They were modified for web posting using Adobe Photoshop 7.0

The original large-format raw files are available upon request.

Westwood Tower and...
Topic: West of Hollywood

Westwood Tower and…

Westwood Village is the commercial center of Westwood, sort of its downtown, at the south edge of the UCLA campus, about seven miles west of Hollywood. The place is filled with old Mediterranean-revival architecture (specially designed by the founders of Westwood, the Janns brothers, to complement UCLA's Romanesque buildings), all converted and reconverted many times into other uses.

Here's one. It now houses a dentist's office on the main floor. The three kinds of verticals are amusing.

There aren't a whole lot of people of color in the area, so no one seems offended by the sign above the dentist's door. UCLA has not adopted this as its school motto.

Westwood: Mixed Mode - see this page (PDF format) from a recently amended city planning document, a list of the many "Locally Significant Historic Resources" - addresses of interesting buildings with architectural style and date of construction. Then look at this and see city planning at work.
