And where else to show off new dress and pearl bracelets behind cool shades but in the shadow of the Hollywood sign with the LA skyline spread out in front of you? 🙂
Apart from the view of LA and the Hollywood sign, there is another reason for visiting The Griffith Observatory. They offer loads of free things to do, see and learn! Check out their website. And this in a city where you have to morgage your house to visit Disney Land or Universal Studios.
We were at the Griffith Observatory, high above the husle and bustle of Los Angeles. The original plan had been to stop at Hollywood Boulevard but about 1,000 other people had the same idea and at the speed we were driving past the Kodak / Man’s Chinese Theater we had plenty of time to see there were stars in the pavement.
Instead we continued on past and drove up into the Hollywood Hills for a breath of fresh air. From here you can see the LA skyline, take photographs with the Hollywood sign in the distance, and it wasn’t nearly as crowded.
This photo can presently be found at the 1650 Gallery in Los Angeles as part of the jurored group exhibition, Urban Landscape.
