ok, some apologies:
- today’s architecture update is flawed. due to me. and my not having my good camera. i know, a poor workman blames his tools. to that end: i’m blaming my tools.
- i don’t know, i’m sure there’s something else i can apologize for.
- oh, that’s right, this palace (for it’s a palace) deserves to be documented and shot over days, with amazing cameras. instead i had 5 minutes and a point and shoot.
nonetheless, here are pictures of a palace in los feliz. which is, for those who don’t live in l.a, a part of los angeles. technically it’s where i live. i think. i live in about 10 different neighborhoods:
- los feliz
- east hollywood
- hollywood hills
- franklin village
- beachwood canyon, etc…
but los feliz is one of the neighborhoods i live in. sort of. and here’s the palace. apparently it’s famous for having been the seat of a huge estate at one point. and over time the estate has been chopped up and sold off. so now it’s a palace without an estate. but it’s still amazing. and apparently jimi hendrix wrote ‘purple haze’ here. and apparently jimmy page met the devil here. or something. i guess it depends upon how you define ‘devil’. and possibly how you define ‘jimmy page’.
in any case, as i might have mentioned, it’s one of the most amazing houses in l.a.
p.s - my friend marya was standing by the pool so i’m including a picture of her in amongst the architecture.
