"Notes on how things seem from out here in Hollywood..."
Bougainvillea in bloom at The Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine, 17190 Sunset Boulevard, Pacific Palisades, California - and yes, what look like blossoms are really specialized, highly-pigmented leaves. The actual blossoms are minor things.

If you use any of these photos for commercial purposes I assume you'll discuss that with me.
These were shot with a Nikon D70 - using lens (1) AF-S Nikkor 18-70 mm 1:35-4.5G ED, or (2) AF Nikkor 70-300mm telephoto, or after 5 June 2006, (3) AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor, 55-200 mm f/4-5.6G ED. They were modified for web posting using Adobe Photoshop 7.0
The original large-format raw files are available upon request.
