A Glimpse of Hollywood @ Sunset

Sunset Blvd, that is....

I had to run some errands in Hollywood and took a few pics.

Across from the bank is this apt. Bldg that's seemingly had an iPhone ad plastered to it's facade for years. For about 5k a month you can have a nice view of DT LA...and a Starbucks on the ground level. Now that's a bargain!

On my way to the dispensary, I pass this iconic landmark.

Then, as I get to Sunset and Cahuenga, there's a chill in the air...(Dun Dun Duuuunnnnn). The dreaded CNN building!

Then, after getting my 'fix' I head toward Philz but as I wait to cross, there's some police activity. Someone set a small fire and one of the cops is putting it out with an extinguisher while others cuff the loon.

Across the street is one of the last 'record stores' I know of, Amoeba Music.

And then to Philz where I intend to put a dent in the gift card I got for X-mas...

...and where some of the most valuable artwork in LA resides.

But wait. What did I see on the wall behind the Baristas?

I seem to recall seeing a similar image right here on CS recently.
roll eyes

To the 5 people who might be bothered to look at this blog: Thanks for stopping by!

*edit

To no one in particular

Great to see your artwork and I'm tempted to post it here but...pretty sure they'd think it was me and then I'd have to get a restraining order....

Wb, ty, and love the Banksy reference!
cheers

Wow you really describe L A true to it’s form . Saved me a trip I feel like I was in L A with this fun yet funny blog of yours cheers
Thanks, Abby! This is just two blocks of Sunset really. LA is huge! DT and Hollywood are just little specks in the grand scheme.

Thanks for your comment.
grin
Oops my bad...I just saw that you're in Long Beach. You already know that.

Hi BD, that is your artwork, isn't it?
"Across from the bank is this apt. Bldg that's seemingly had an iPhone ad plastered to it's facade for years. For about 5k a month you can have a nice view of DT LA...and a Starbucks on the ground level. Now that's a bargain!"

If its the apartment behind the iphone the views can't be that good.
I have enjoyed the photos. I have never been to USA.
I enjoyed the photos. Thank you bouquet
Love all pictures and the telling of what and were they are. thumbs up

How did you down load pics ???
@Molly

Just one is mine Molly...or I should say, Philz's. Which reminds me. My gift card is still dent-free. The coffee was on the house.
dunno

@Ish

That's why the obstruction-free view is 5k!

Mr. BadlyDrawn,

How do I transfer a photo on my phone to my computer?
Email, usb/charger port?
I'm sorry BD.

I'm in the third grade and don't understand your question.confused
I think if you attach in an email draft, you can retrieve in outer. Not sure.

Or maybe you can access files in phone by connecting via USB/charging cable.

I don't have a computer, presently.
grin
*retrieve in 'puter' ...auto correct
sigh
Thank you BD but I'm still not sure how to do it.

But thank you anyway gift
BD, that must have been the one I recognised thumbs up
I already hated you for being smart and handsome.
Now I have a double reason
It's been years I've been to Cali.

Nice pics. I would like to see some pics on Hollywood Blvd.

The Mann's Chinese theater (is it still there?) and the Hollywood walk of foot prints.
...and my flatulence alternately smells like Jasmine on a high spring day, or bacon/maple syrup\popcorn. People often follow me into elevators...

Might as well make it a hat-trick, Molly!
cheering
AS, It's a zoo up there and I avoid it like the plague. It's just two blocks north. I should have pointed the lense that way to get a pic of the sign at least...

dunno
It's been a long time but when I lived out there my friend and I used to go to Sunset and Cahuenga Blvd to people watch.

Have you settled there pretty much or you still roaming the country?
I've become quite fond of walking around in short sleeves on days like today. That's all I can say for sure, Fay.
grin
I lived in Orange County for many years.

I use to enjoy the walks on Hollywood blvd. and visiting Universal walk.

Maybe one day I'll return to that great state. banana
Thankyou BD it worked applause applause applause
