Walking up Highland- always interesting

Today I had made a brief foray onto the streets of Hollywood. I went to Famima to get one of my sisters a belated birthday card. Despite my bad video review, Famima does sell excellent greeting cards. On my way home, I stopped to video a little construction work and to illustrate one of those nice little elements of my ‘hood that makes it such an extra special place to live- casting calls.

The fellow on the above is using a car’s sideview mirror to judge the progress of the hole, he and his crew are digging. After digging a hole, they drop the giant I-beam into it. Back East, I was accustomed to a different method for getting those things into ground- pound them in. I do think this method is quieter.

Let’s look at our casting call subjects from across the street and view the construction work up close. The second video is only 10 seconds long or so.


About Russell Smith

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is also an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Natasha, Maxwell, Tigger and Nigel.
