Traveling west on Sunset...

...from the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles, Sunset Blvd. takes you into East Hollywood...in the early days of Hollywood, this was the home of many film studios...now it's quite different...




The beautifully restored 1920's
Vista Theater stands at the intersection of Sunset
and Hollywood Blvd...a last bit of "old Hollywood", this was once the lot where D.W. Griffith built the famous "Babylon" set for his epic "Intolerance"...










Just north of Sunset is Barnsdall Art Park which sits on top of Olive Hill...with the municipal gallery and Frank Lloyd Wright's Hollyhock House, built for Aline Barnsdall.  My favorite thing about the park is the views out to the city in every direction!




A sliver of Sunset Blvd. and the city beyond seen through two Kaiser
Hospital buildings...and the Hollyhock House seen from Sunset, over hospital construction...


A local Capoeira group practices on the lawn at Barnsdall Park...
and a view of Barnsdall seen from Kaiser Hospital on a bright winter day...

















Views of my favorite building in Los Angeles, the Griffith Observatory, seen from Olive Hill...
