Turtle with fake turtles, Greystone Mansion gardens, Beverly Hills

Photographed at Greystone Mansion, 905 Loma Vista Drive, Beverly Hills, on Tuesday, April 18, 2006, late morning, two bronze turtles in the reflecting pool in one of the formal gardens, with a real turtle investigating, and the small fry hide in the shade.

Photographed in the gardens of Greystone Mansion, 905 Loma Vista Drive, Beverly Hills, on Tuesday, April 18, 2006, late morning - color studies in extreme close-up. The off-camera contrast - in the adjacent parking lot the Beverly Hill Police Department was running counterterrorism drills, maybe thirty guys in full riot gear, with eight or ten police cars and the armored SWAT vehicle zooming around, and group of guys practicing charges at an invisible crowd, swinging their batons and striding forward in unison. Just another day in paradise.

Easter

The Hollywood Cross, overlooking Cahuenga Boulevard, from Mulholland Drive

Easter is tomorrow morning. There will be a sunrise service at the Hollywood Bowl, the first in a few years. Those services were suspended while they rebuilt the thing one more time, but that's done now.

This is the concrete cross on the hill overlooking the Bowl, as seen April 13th from Mulholland Drive.

So Hollywood is not filled with venial, materialistic, godless folks, who only pay lip service to religion to sell movie tickets. Well, there are plenty of those, but there are churches, and plenty of pious people. It's just hard to tell them apart sometimes.
