An Afternoon Walk Along Hollywood Boulevard

in travelfeed •  18 days ago  (edited)

I took an afternoon stroll along Hollywood Boulevard to experience it for myself. We've all grown up with the glitz, the glamour and the style of Hollywood, however I found it was much grittier in real life than I expected. As I walked along the long strip of shop-houses, bars and restaurants I took some pictures of the sights and people I saw to try and capture the overall feeling. Hollywood. I hope you enjoy these pics, as I tried to catch the real essence of Hollywood, not just the picture-perfect one we see on tv. Its a lot more real in the flesh.

******* HOLLYWOOD *******


LAMBO

If you don't have the money or means to buy your own exotic sportscar, then you can always rent one on Hollywood Boulevard for 15 minutes. Just enough to cruise the strip and take a few pics for your Instagram to impress the world.

SIDEWALK LIFE

It's not all celebrity millionaires in Hollywood, there are no shortage of people down on their luck wandering the streets.

MURAL

This was a great piece of street art which was made to celebrate Dolores Del Rio, one of the first Latino Hollywood superstars. You can see my steemit story about this mural (https://steemit.com/art/@bkkshadow/mural-of-dolores-del-rio-on-hollywood-boulevard)
