"Notes on how things seem from out here in Hollywood..."
Traditional and Non-Traditional
The Guaranty Building built for the Guaranty Building and Loan Association, 6331 Hollywood Boulevard, 1923, John C. Austin, architect. Charlie Chaplin and Cecil B. DeMille invested in this building that attracted tenants like gossip columnist Hedda Hopper. Now it is the headquarters of the Church Of Scientology International. Nice Wreath.
Across the street at Hollywood and Vine, at Iguana Vintage Clothing, an all American Santa - green neon, the flag, the jazzman and the reflection of a palm tree in the glass.
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.
