March 19, 2006 - The Most Picturesque Basketball Court In The World

Home | The Weird | Quotes

Last week there was 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.

The spectators looking on, the faces at the pagoda looking right at the basketball court –

Korean Bell Pavilion at Angels Gate Park, detail


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