Dreaming about Hollywood

It’s very good today to be in a warm apartment and to dream about Hollywood (Florida).

Everything is bright in the future!

Just look at the picture below.

Would you like one of the houses on it with a pool and palms?

Do you like speed?

Use any of the boats..

Please also remember that a beach is waiting for you.

Now close your eyes and dream.

You can add whatever else you want to the dream.

It’s all yours, nobody can take it from you!

Enjoy!

Istanbul (not Constantinople)

More than 50 years ago “Istanbul (not Constantinople)” was the very popular song in the Soviet Union. At that time only élite at the top could get permission to travel and to see Turkey or any other country.

After we became Americans we visited more than 50 countries including Turkey.

Istanbul is a wonderful city! It has so much to offer that you need to stay there long time just to get a proper feeling of it. Unfortunately, we had only one week for travel in the country.

However, it is impossible to forget the word Istanbul in America. You can see It all over the country.

Hollywood gallery

This morning I learned how to create a gallery of photos on this blog.

I created the page “HOLLYWOOD GALLERY” and placed there selected photos from the Media library.

Please take a look and let me know if everything works properly.

Thank you!

Sleeping Hollywood

The photo below shot in the early morning from our apartment (it is on the 27th floor on the west side of the building).

The Atlantic ocean is on the east side and is not on the photo. You see waterways and the city on the west of them.

Rain

Florida is a sunny state.

In a normal sunny day we have a wonderful view from the balcony of our rented apartment on the 27th floor of a building in Hollywood (photo #1).

However, when it’s raining, we can see less (photo #2) but my wife can hear much more (she hears sounds of the rain).

Last time when it was raining I saw that rain produced something like my digital paintings on the balcony’s floor. Surely, I was glad to photograph the nature’s art (photo #3).

It’s very good that Florida is a sunny state!

Would you like to join them?

Below is a picture of activity on Hollywood’s boardwalk.

I have a small problem with this picture.

Can anyone tell me what is the name of the restaurant?

Anyway, I like that people enjoy being there.

Would you like to join them?
