After spending the past nine months in England, I decided I needed to go home–at least temporarily. I’ve been spending the past few weeks in California doing dissertation research, writing, visiting friends and of course, taking photos. I’m currently splitting my couch-surfing time between my friend Mark and his friend Jay, author of the amazing book Edith Head: The Fifty-Year Career of Hollywoods Greatest Costume Designer in Los Angeles. The dissertation is coming along and it’s been wonderful soaking up the sun. I’ve really missed California weather.
Last week I went up to Hollywood to meet with Vivien Leigh fan and awesome person Jeremy Kinser. We had drinks at the Roosevelt (thanks, Jeremy!) and then I went around and snapped some photos. I won’t lie, I kind of secretly love being a tourist!
Ahhh, the photos are so gorgeous! I want to visit Hollywood so bad.
Wow! You have a great eye, Kendra… not a news flash at this point for followers of this blog, but noteworthy nonetheless!
Great Hollywood pictures, my daughter is wanting us to go there once really bad! Every time we get on the plain to some other destination she asks if there is a plane to Hollywood haha!
Yes, but did you get a margarita at El Coyote?!? Sincerely wish that I hadn’t been in New York City during your stay– you must have passed my flat two dozen times. Ah well, maybe next time the stars will alight for us to grab a drink at the Roosevelt– or Musso’s!
