December 2018 Photography

The latest galleries at the sister site Just Above Sunset Photography –

Botanical Persistence: Yes, it’s December, and there have been fires, followed by heavy rain, and the air is gritty – this is Los Angeles after all. But the roses won’t die, and cactus survives anything and everything. That’s what they say about Mother Nature. “Nevertheless, she persisted.” ~ Saturday, December 8, 2018

California Living: Some people do live like this – startling new condos on the sand on the exclusive Marina Peninsulas south of Venice Beach – next to the channel where the fancy sailboats head out to sea – off to Catalina or Hawaii. Life is good here – not real – but good. ~ Friday, December 7, 2018

Rise Up!: New women at the Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC) on Venice Boulevard – the former Venice Division of the Los Angeles Police Department, at 685 Venice Boulevard, many blocks inland from the beach, an active jail from 1929 until the early seventies. Rise up! ~ Friday, December 7, 2018

Old Rain: It’s a Hollywood thing. Old buildings look best in the rain – Bullocks Wilshire, 3050 Wilshire Boulevard, 1929, by the Los Angeles architects John and Donald Parkinson – the ultimate Art Deco luxury department store for more than sixty years, now a private law school. But the exterior has been restored to its original glory, and on a rare rainy day in Los Angeles, it is evocative of another time and another world. ~ Thursday, December 6, 2018

Below and Above: The world is a distressing place at street level – a snake pit. It’s best to look up. There’s solace in the skies. ~ Tuesday, December 4, 2018

Other Realities: Just another Monday morning on Hollywood Boulevard – no one is out and about yet – time for a quiet walk through all sorts of alternative realities. ~ Monday, December 3, 2018

The Season Begins: Poinsettia and roses all along Sunset Boulevard – the holiday season begins in Hollywood. ~ Saturday, December 1, 2018
