I was in Los Angeles and had the opportunity to explore the area around the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue in Hollywood. The sidewalk outside the Hollywood & Highland Center is filled with famous people such as Marilyn Monroe, Superman, Batman and the like. This staircase, which was closed for the night, led up to a quiet area on the second floor, where I camped out for an hour or so taking a variety of pictures. I was amused when, as I was about to leave, a security guard came up the two flights of stairs, past the barrier ropes. to tell me that my tripod was a hazard to the other (non-existent) people!
