A little preview of tomorrow's Just Above Sunset, two of the botanicals - shots from Saturday, June 17, 2006, at the curb in front of a shabby stucco apartment building on the northwest corner of Hayworth and Norton, West Hollywood.
Yeah, it's sort of an inside joke, a Hollywood thing.
And for what's playing at the Chinese this weekend, it's certainly not "Blazing Saddles" - and it's not Chinese. But it is Asian, sort of. One of the cars from the film was on display in the courtyard, the front bumper just above Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers. But you couldn't get near it with all the thirteen-year-old boys checking it out. Ah well. Times change.
An interesting building. A full photo shoot will follow one day.
The old and the new...
Old Hollywood - the roof of Grauman's Chinese Theater and the tower at the El Capitan -
And more specifically this -
These Jacaranda, one block south of Sunset Boulevard on Hayworth just before Fountain Avenue, weren't whistling any tangos, but then no one asked. And this a quiet street, just below the big Directors Guild of America headquarters - you can hardly hear the traffic up on Sunset at all.
