Griffith Observatory
seen from Mt Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA, USA, 2016

It took me quite a hike on a hot November day to get this image (see https://goo.gl/5WNezu) but in the end I managed to get a perspective with the obelisk in the center in front of the observatory. On my way up and down the mountain the observatory offered some views including the skyline c.f. link below, but my main goal was the building with just the city in the background.

Different angle: https://goo.gl/H4hjE7

Hollywood Hydrant

On a hot November day at noon ( 32C/90F ) I hiked up Mt Hollywood to find the perfect angle to shoot Griffith Park Observatory. Stupid idea! And I did not find the angle I was looking for....

But on top of the mountain I found this great hydrant.

After taking this image I went to the vista point and still did not find the angle to the observatory I was hoping for. So I gave up and unhappily headed back down.
In my sadness, I did not pay much attention on the route and was just following a woman with a stroller. She walked down on a different route than the one I took on my way up and #shabang there was it, my perfect angle. I post one of these pictures later.

We played around with light painting using a bicycle rim with LEDs.
