A few weeks ago I went to visit my sister in Hollywood.
We had the time of our lives and it was a great get-away for me.
My sister has an amazing view from her office in Los Angeles.
This is only a partial view from her office.
While visiting with my sister, she decided to take off early from work so that we could do something fun.
We called her friend Julie and we all decided to go on a city bus tour of Hollywood.
This was our fun bus, and we did have fun.
This is where the bus stopped and let everyone off to take pictures
This is the view we saw when the bus stopped and let us out.
You can actually see the building my sister lives in from here.
She lives on the 11th floor.
Her building is almost in the center of the photo.
If you click on it you can see where the street curves and if you look up and to the right just a tad,
you will see her black and green building right next to a long yellow building with orange trim at the bottom.
Yep, it looks so small in comparison to other buildings but it's really not.
The three of us having a great time.
I clicked this image as the bus drove by, then I processed it in photoshop.
My sister loves this picture and wants a copy to hang in her loft.
Her loft is decorated with all sorts of pics of Hollywood and Los Angeles.
After our bus tour, we walked down the street to get something to eat because we were all famished.
We ended up at the outdoor mall at Hollywood and Highland.
Here, we found a great italian restaurant where the food was just as fabulous as the atmosphere.
The next day I went exploring on my own. I found myself at the Griffiths Park Observatory,
then after that I went to the Gene Autry Museum and The Los Angeles Zoo.
I had a great time and took lots of pics.
This is the view of the L.A. Zoo from the Gene Autry Museum which is just across the street.
I processed this one. Isn't he beautiful?
