Tuesday, February 9, 2010 Dark Afternoon

1606 North Laurel Avenue, Los Angeles (Hollywood), Tuesday, February 9, 2010

It was no day for a photo jaunt. The heavy rains started at noon. The streets were flooded and the stop lights dead, and you could hear the sirens down on the Sunset Strip and a few blocks east in Hollywood traffic accidents and road closures. But staying home was fine, in this old apartment building from the sixties, like you'd see in an old black-and-white Perry Mason episode (where Paul Drake drives up in the white Thunderbird to chat with a witness). The place is very LA, and maybe more so in the rain. And if you're one of the biggest stars in French rock and you're making a music video of your smash hit song about Southern California, you shoot some of it at the courtyard and pool of this very building (and the rest in the surrounding blocks). It's iconic. And it's even more iconic in the rain.
