I'll Get You My Pretty....
And your little dog too!
The Spadena House, or The Witch's House, is in Beverly Hills. Thanks to my contact Neil Armstrong2
for showing me this house in his wonderful 'stream a few weeks before we went on our vacation to Los Angeles. The minute I saw his post I knew I had to view it in person. The wikipedia link on the history of the house is worth a read. The house, built in 1921, is believed to be inspiration for Walt Disney as he was planning his original theme park in LA.
The photos we took this day were in the middle of the day and the sun was beating down hard on the house. A lot of my photos came back useless because of overexposure. I have used Neil's approach in salvaging a few by using texture. I hope he takes it as flattery instead of imitation. If you are ever in the LA area, I recommend a visit to the house. It is cool the way the landscaper is meticulous in maintaining a run-down yard. I imagine the landscaping budget to grow "weeds" is probably as much as my monthly house note.
