I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life. A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen. This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own. I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo. If it’s a part of events that has been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well. Hope everyone enjoys. Today’s photo is me posing with the Hollywood sign in the background.
In March 2007 I did my very first trip to Hollywood. I was going to the premiere of the TMNT 2007 movie. The premiere was at the Chinese Mans Theater on Hollywood Blvd. The mall next door has a few area where you can see the Hollywood sign in a distance. This is on the top floor of the view area. Sadly the Hollywood sign is hard to see in the background, but it is there.
I spent this trip with my mother and Brinatello from the TMNT fandom. We got some cool Build a Bear Turtles, got to see the Henson Studios from outside and walked around the Walk of Fame. I was excited to finally see Hollywood with my own eyes. Just disappointed that there was never a really good clear shot of the Hollywood sign. Since this trip though, I’ve seen the Hollywood sign many times and have gotten some great pictures.
Have you ever seen the Hollywood sign? Was it a clear day? Did you get good pictures? Please share your memories, comments and questions below!
