Friday, March 20, 2009 More than Mango

It's a mango. Someone wants you to buy mango-flavored vodka. And it's just a mango, floating over the hole in the ground where the old Ambassador Hotel stood, where Bobby Kennedy was assassinated, down on Wilshire, Wilshire Center.

This is also nice, on the wall of the nearby Talmadge, at the corner of Wilshire and Kenmore, the apartments that bear the name of silent film star Norma Talmadge, who received the building as a gift from her husband, Joseph Schenk, a founding chairman of 20th Century Fox.  He must have liked her.

Around the corner, the Davis Garage on Catalina 1927 an all that

Ah, above the garage, just another stairway to heaven

Nearby, this may not be heaven. The Big Guy is not gay, at least not in that way.

This is an odd corner of Los Angeles
