Friday, June 18, 2010 In the June Sun

Smiley Face, Blue Hair

This was in a parking lot up at the Griffith Observatory on Mount Hollywood yes, that's the name of the low mountain, not a verb and a direct object and the Hollywood Sign is one hill over, on Mount Lee. Go figure. But it was a hot sunny day down in the flats and it seemed like a good idea to drive up in the hills, above the mild smog, and see faces in the full sun. And here's Galileo in the sunshine, part of the Astronomers Monument, a Public Works Arts Project from 1934

And here's Isaac Newton

No face, but this fellow lived out his last days nearby, tending his garden, and his tree is at the trailhead, the trail up to the Hollywood Sign on the next hill over
