Fine Art Friday: Hollywood! | Des Moines Photographer

Did you know that the famous Hollywood sign doesn’t light up? This was a surprise to me, but the reason why is apparently because it would draw too much traffic to the neighborhood where you can view the sign. Getting to this spot requires navigating narrow, winding residential roads and quite understandably, too much traffic would cause a big dangerous mess.

This is the first of several Fine Art Friday posts from the Los Angeles area. I have several more fine art photos ready to go and I will be traveling there a few more times this year.
