How was I supposed to know that the Hollywood sign wasn't lit up at night?, originally uploaded by biffybeans.
The first time I visited Los Angeles, my friends Lisa and Steve took great lengths to take me to see the "Hollywood sign."
We didn't realize that it wouldn't be lit up at night.
Believe it or not, I'm actually quite close to it. I don't know where we were, or how we got there, but I was able to see it by moonlight.
When I went back a year later, I managed to make up for missing the photo op by having my friend snap this from outside the Kodak Theater in Hollywood. This was the same day that we went to see a revival of "Journey to the Center of the Earth" (The Pat Boone version) at Grauman's Egyptian Theatre.
