LOL! Just realized I'm really early on this. It's only Monday. Oh well, this will serve as early notice to get your pics ready to post!
My World Tuesday is a new meme hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Wren, Fishing Guy Tom over at Show Your World. I'm glad I had just enough time before running off to jury duty to do this post. This is just a glimpse of a small part of downtown Los Angeles. These pictures are from the area I used to work on Grand Avenue.
This is the building I used to work in, California Plaza tower one. This was taken from the lower plaza area where there is a post office, Starbucks, flower shop, a few places to eat including Panda Express and a wonderful watercourt complete with waterfall and watershow that can be cleared out for a stage on which they have musical entertainment in the summer. Wish I had shots of that area.
This is dancing water fountain that greets you as you walk down the steps to the lower plaza level between the two towers.
This is Disney Concert Hall just a block down the street. When they first built this (and I watched it go up), the building was so shiny they tenants in the apartment building complained about the glare. They had to do something to tone down the shine, I'm just assuming they used some monster brillo pads.
And this the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion directly across the street from the Disney Concert Hall. If you look on the left across the street you can see a part of the sign. This has been the home of the Emmy Awards for many years and hosts many musicals. I saw "The Wiz" there as a kid and I'll always remember the Phantom of The Opera signs hanging for a long time.
