Stonework
Topic: South of Hollywood

Stonework

At the other Just Above Sunset sites you'll find both a page of high-resolution photos of the Korean Bell of Friendship and Bell Pavilion at Angels Gate Park in San Pedro and a more extensive photo album of the location. Phillip Raines, the musician and mason who has written extensively for the weekly site, Just Above Sunset, wanted shots of the stonework at the pagoda - professional interest. Thursday, March 16, 2006, another drive down there to get those details. Thirteen shots of the stonework are here, in an album called Stonework. At the album you will also find links to the nine pieces Phillip has published in these pages.

This stonework may be of limited interest, but it is cool. Phillip's first reaction - "Holy shit, and that's granite! I'll elaborate later."

Here, in high-resolution, are a few of the shots.

March Madness: The Most Picturesque Basketball Court In The World

Last week at these sites you'd find a page of photos of the Korean Bell of Friendship and Bell Pavilion at Angels Gate Park in San Pedro, and a link to a more extensive photo album. The most picturesque basketball court in the world can be found there too, but a film crew was shooting a Viagra commercial that day, so that wasn't in the collection of photos. Here it is. You see it in films on television now and then. Catalina in the background.

Topic: Landmarks

Hollywood Places

Tuesday, March 14th, late afternoon, running errands in the neighborhood, had the camera along, and pulled over for a quick shot of Chicago West - down on Melrose Avenue, the Second City studios, stages and offices. Yeah, they're the Chicago outfit that fed Saturday Night Live the likes of the late John Belushi, who died up the hill at the Chateau Marmont from the drugs. This is the Hollywood branch. No stars today. Just another storefront and parking lot.

Second City on Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles



































The parking lot belongs to "The Improv" next door, thus the faces.































Next door is the "The Improv" - the big comedy club in Los Angeles. Everyone has played the Improv, as it's been here since 1974 - Steve Martin, Richard Pryor, Woody Allen, Robin Williams, Jerry Seinfeld, David Letterman, Bill Cosby, Chevy Chase, Milton Berle, Dudley Moore, Lily Tomlin, Jay Leno, Billy Crystal, Dana Carvey, Drew Carey, Joan Rivers, David Steinberg, the Smothers Brothers, George Carlin, Steve Allen, Redd Foxx, David Brenner, Richard Lewis, Dick Cavett, Freddy Prinze, Rodney Dangerfield, Robert Klein, Phyllis Diller, Marty Feldman, Martin Mull, David Spade... and even Liza Minnelli. Before they became "stars" Debra Winger and Karen Black worked as waitresses here. Or so it says here.
