Seen On Hollywood Boulevard

.
LA 2011-11-11 27 (Marilyn and Friend)

Images from Hollywood Boulevard in the two blocks immediately east and west of Highland Avenue. They are self-explanatory.

By the way, all these LA pictures were taken with the little Olympus Micro Four-Thirds camera I picked up last summer. It is only kind of camera that my teacher in Maine last summer uses these days. Very small, light, inconspicuous on the street but terrific quality. Perfect for old joints that travel.

TOMORROW: on to Beverly Hills.

I could do without the scientology but the glamour is fine by me!

California is crazy and I love it. Went to high school and part of my college there....oh, the Sixties...and now I'm in my sixties.

actually not as self-explanatory as you might think. this might seem like a really stupid question but is that a real girl on that red platform, looking very much like marilyn?

I have the same question brattcat. Sure looks like a real blonde bombshell to me.

If that's not a real blonde bombshell and just a statue.... it's really lifelike!

These photos are great-very interesting signs, and I love that woman in the pink shirt and black pants--she looks like a car hop to me. I've never been anywhere in California, except the airport in San Jose. One of these days, maybe.
