Griffith Observatory


A full frontal view of the entrance to the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. Its located on top of Mt. Hollywood which will allow you to see the famous “Hollywood” sign and oddly for the city of Los Angeles; entrance and parking are free! There is a live show in the Planetarium however that does require cost $3-$7. We were heading to Venice Beach after so we didn’t have time to check out the show.

    • Thanks for the compliments… it was just a wide angle lens, but i have a full frame sensor so my 16mm are truly 16mm πŸ™‚

      • Gotcha.. Thanks for sharing that info with me. Seeing as how I shoot with a crop sensor I would never be able to get that shot unless I had the space to move back a few feet I guess.
