📸 Photo of the Week: Hollywood & Vine 📸

Seeing as “the Mulligan” will be happening in a little less than two weeks, I decided to revisit one of the actual film photos I took while I was in Los Angeles.

Here is a photo of the art deco-influenced neon clock sign taken at the iconic intersection of Hollywood and Vine. According to Teh Wikipedias, the intersection marked an entertainment district that “became famous in the 1920s for its concentration of radio and movie-related businesses.”

I have to admit, it was kinda cool to literally be at the center of Tinseltown. I apologize for the photo being so dark and grainy. Such are the hazards when dealing with film photography. I will try to take a better one when the Mulligan takes place.

Also nearby is a great spot named 33 Taps, a huge sports bar with (you guessed it) 33 beers on tap, plus great bites to eat and a friendly staff.

As an added bonus, above is a photo of the Capitol Records building, which can be easily spotted from Hollywood & Vine. The reason I’ve not featured this as a Photo of the Week is because it was taken with my iPhone and not one of my film cameras. Maybe I should amend this rather arbitrary rule. Hmmm. What do you think? LMK in the comments below.
