August 26- Wilshire Blvd.

I think I have mentioned before that we are
season ticket holders to the Pasadena Playhouse.
Friday evening we attended a play called “Fences",
not knowing anything about the play.
Well, when we arrived and saw that it was starring
Lawrence Fishburne and Angela Bassett, we were thrilled.
Also appearing in the cast were Orlando Jones and Kadeem Hardison.
It was outstanding! Such an intimate setting
to see such wonderful stars perform.
Our season seats are in the balcony, front row, center
(which is approximately above row 12).
The play was written by August Wilson, who is also worth checking out.
Well, if that wasn’t enough, we got up this morning
to go to the LA County Museum of Art to see the
David Hockney “Portraits” exhibition. Truly,
the best thing I have seen in a long time at LACMA.
If you don’t know about Hockney, find out.
He is extraordinary.
What a great weekend.
This shot is through the moon roof of the HHR
on Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles.

It pays to shoot up in the big city. Vote

Very nice imaging. The description is great also.

Excellent graphic power.

....So you had to climb to shoot this? Nicely done :)

Wow, what a weekend!
Fishburne, Bassett, Jones, and Hardision. Really? That is quite an ensemble.
I'd pay to see any one of them read a telephone book, not to mention August Wilson.
I don't know Hockney, but I will take your advice and Google him.
And your shot is phenomenal... Yes... this was a winning weekend. Vote.

Very "cool" shot - GMV

Very very nice shot. One of my favourite architecture shots of yours I think. Great colour / finish to this. Also great commentary although your treatment makes this appear like a totally different place. Really like this shot.

Great blues and the usual great treatment

It seems you have had a great weekend... Yesterday evening I have gone with my friends to Senigallia, a beautiful town over the sea, in the middle of Italy. There was an exposition of classic Harley Davidson and 50's american cars. But there was a lot of people, so I wasn't able to shoot any decent composition.

Great shot Doug! :) Roberto
