This past weekend I decided to put away my artistic style and just be a regular, normal L.A. tourist.
Some of my friends and I decided to hike up to the Hollywood sign and take a couple of "look-at-me-I'm-holding-up-the-sign" photos. It felt a little cheesy at the moment we were taking the photos, but now, looking back, I'm extremely glad we took the pics-- they're great memories!
We also spent about 2 hours walking around the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which goes on for about 15 blocks (according to what my roomy's mom told us). It was a little bit strange walking around a place that I've only ever seen on TV or in the movies-- and I felt like every few minutes I was taking pictures, I was so excited.
Even though the Hollywood area was a pretty cool place to walk around and see for a day, it was also very dirty, and there were a lot of poor and homeless people begging for money in the streets.
It seems strange to me that a place associated with such wealth and fame can be the everyday home for some of the city's poorer people.
But then again, I'm not surprised.
Just think about the Capital.
