Maria's Thursday Three
Shell, Glendale, 1927. Photograph by Edward Weston. (From huntington.org.)
1. Must See: A tribute to the work of world-renowned photographer Edward Weston at the Glendale Central Library next Thursday, September 27, at 7 pm. There will be a film about Weston's life and work and this event, sponsored by the Glendale Historical Society and the Friends of the Glendale Public Library, is free. The Glendale connection? Weston opened his first photography studio on Brand Boulevard in 1911.
2. The Hollywood Bowl, still a really good thing to do in Los Angeles. You don't even need to get the pricier box seats, it's pretty fun in the nosebleed section. Bring a great picnic, some wine and don't forget dessert. With the stars above and the performance below, I still marvel at the experience everytime I'm there. Too bad Mike is hatin' on Rufus.
3. We recently tried the Flyaway Bus from Union Station to LAX and the ride went pretty smooth as a good alternative way to get to the airport. Just don't stand in the wrong area at LAX when you're trying to catch it back to Union Station 'cause you'll be very sad when it ignores you... waiting there for a half-hour... with your bags... and a toddler who was a good sport about it. So sad. Also, please note that the buses are located at the very back of Union Station so have your friend or the taxi drop you off there instead of you having to lug everything back there.
