p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · #512 Hollywood Bank


This is the big bank building on the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue, about a half block away from the famous Grauman's Chinese Theater. i shot it the other day but those of you who live in Southern California will immediately recognize that the clouds don't belong to late July in LA - where no clouds exist. Those were shot al little earlier in the year. Artistically, though it works a lot better. I hope you don't mind. If I have time to shoot something better, I will but for now, this will have to do.

Hey Endre - how are you doing? So that is where our bail out money went... I really like all the details/carvings/gargoyles etc on the facade.

Great contrasting colors. I like the perspective and crop as well.

Thanks, Jim, my friend! I'm so happy you like it. This building has been there in Hollywood for decades. I think most or the bailout money has been paid back. It the "stimulus" that disappeared into bankrupt companies like Solyndra that we have to worry about.

I hope all is well with you and your huge brood.

Fond regards,

Endre

Endre,

You did a great job on this one! I'm a fan of dark blue skies anyway, but I agree with the above posters that the contrast in tones is really good here. It simply exerts a cool white harsh sunlight feeling.

A pretty piece of architecture, and the mix of clouds and sky complement it well. There's so little true "white" in clouds that it doesn't overwhelm or obscure the white of the building itself...

Thanks so much, Jerry! I find that interesting clouds and sky almost never overwhelm a subject. I'm glad you like it.

All best wishes,

Endre
