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!

Again about scale

PHOTO CHALLENGE: SCALE

I tried to show some examples of scale on a photo below (like height of a building versus heights of palms).

Do you see others?

“Diplomat”

WHICH WAY?

CITY STRUCTURES

“Diplomat” is a huge hotel and spa on the South Ocean Drive in Hollywood, Florida. Eastern side of it looks on the beach, western side – on the waterway.

Some evenings we enjoy coming on the “Diplomat’s landing”. We absorb beautiful views  of the waterway, boats and the city beside the waterway. Then we turn our backs to the waterway and  take in a view of the “Diplomat’s landing”.

There are two ways to go from the landing to “Diplomat”.

You can use an escalator (it’s on the picture above behind the fountain) and a bridge to cross the street or you can cross the street on the landing’s level.

Here is the escalator.

Cities and city structures

In my earlier posts I showed you interesting structures in Manhattan and Queens.

Take a look today on a relatively small American city. It is Hollywood in Florida.
