Lost in Hollywood

Sometimes getting lost in Hollywood isn’t so bad.

You end up coming across scenes like this one above captured in digital ink by Mrs. Weekndr, who manned the camera as I navigated the family wagon through the congested space that stands between the 101 and LA’s Original Farmer’s Market on Fairfax Ave. Graffiti Jack Nicholson played the lead in this photo, but the Oscar goes to the little winking character in the lower right corner of the rear-view mirror.


A burst of orange Metro rolls down Highland ahead of us with the Kodak Theater towering in the background. I like how the official website spins this architectural monstrosity:

Built at a cost of $94 million, Kodak Theatre was designed by the internationally-renowned Rockwell Group to be as glamorous as its onstage artists and celebrity guests, yet capable of serving the enormous technical needs of a live worldwide television broadcast on Oscar® night.

Okay. So the Lakers won. But that’s no excuse for the dog outfit in the lower left of this photo.
