Photographer's Note

Hollywood Hills!

Yeah, sure! One of the most recognized and photographed places in the world. Everybody on this site know in a split second where I am! Or..?

I did my very best to get as close to the sign as possible, going up Beachwood Drive from Franklin Avenue, to get that one-of-a-kind photo. The higher I got, the harder it was on winding streets. I ended up in cul-de-sacs more than once, turning around and making other turns. I had left my map, only driving after the sign now, occasionally spotting it between trees and houses, behind secluded gardens and over high stone walls.

Finally I reached my goal, behind the last house, there it was. I knew I couldn't get closer. I took my picture, turned around and headed for... Ooops! Where am I...? Did I turn here? No, I've never been here before. Wait! No!

So if everybody know where I am, I sure was the one on drift!!

And the photo wasn't that special...
