What I love about Santa Monica: Annenberg Beach House

The Annenberg foundation purchased the land originally used by Cecil B. Demille for vacationing. On this property has been built a great public pool and social space. Adjacent, (shown here) is the Marion Davies Guest House. Nice archetecture, seems to have been inspired by the same style as a local baptist church.


What I love about West LA: Electronic Architecture

This stylish facade is a government building I believe, can't recall which, though. Clearly inspired by early electronics. You can almost see those little tuning forks snapping back and forth as the current passes through.


A few buildings on Olympic Blvd. in West LA looking toward Century City. The tall building in the background was featured in the very first "Die Hard" movie. The building in the foreground looks like something a Shogun would build if he had the bucks for real estate in West LA.

As if.

What I love about Santa Monica: Posers


So I'm taking a picture of a really cool front door facade. Beautiful, simple, clean architecture. I'm framing things just right and some DUFUS comes into the picture, sits down, lights a cigarette, and starts to talk on his cell phone.

This is the down-side of operating in stealth mode. I am invisible. Of course, if you know I'm there, you can see me, but most don't notice the guy on the bike in the background. This guy certainly didn't notice me taking this picture.
