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

They call it stormy Monday... Topic: Light and Shadow They call it stormy Monday... Monday, March 20, 2006, late afternoon, looking west down Sunset Boulevard at the base of the Hollywood Hills at Laurel Canyon. No pretty sunset tonight. This is rolling in fast off the Pacific, where Sunset Boulevard ends in Malibu at Pacific Coast Highway. Rain tonight. A Raymond Chandler evening ahead.
Sailing Away Topic: Light and Shadow Sailing Away Out of town today - off to Carlsbad, down San Diego way. On the drive down one often sees things like this, a sailboat in the Catalina Channel. This one is heading north, about noon, Thursday, March 16, 2006 - as seen from Angels Gate Park in San Pedro.
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."
March Madness: The Most Picturesque Basketball Court In The World Topic: South of Hollywood 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.
