{Part 1} The Pantages Theater in Hollywood, California. Designed by architect B. Marcus Priteca, it was the last theater built by the vaudeville impresario Alexander Pantages. The palatial Art Deco theater opened on June 4, 1930, as part of the Pantages Theatre Circuit (from Wikipedia).

With the Easter holiday being thrust upon us, I figure it’s time to unsheath my pictures of St. Luke’s Hospital in Pasadena, California. since above the entrance is a Last Supper-ish bas relief. St. Luke’s has been closed for at least a decade. It was made a landmark by the city in 2002, and Pasadena usually takes its preservation seriously. In December of 2013 it was finally sold to some folks who actually want to do something good with it. It has been locked up for awhile now but since it is in a good neighborhood, it has not been vandalized and has been used for the occasional Movie/ TV shoot (then again, what in Southern California HASN’T?). As always, more & better of this set over at my flickr account.

NOT Photoshopped. Right now.

Me with Art Deco, right the hell now . OK, it’s Deco Echo, technically ….

This picture is a balltrip because it was taken at around 11pm at night. If it lets you view full size, you can see the stars. I left the shutter open for about a minute. Highway 1. Big Sur. Fancy selfie is fancy. I know it’s not Art Deco but it’s in the middle of a set I’m editing of Art Deco from San Francisco to Morro Bay that day.

Cheese Dogs, French fries, me feeding a feral cat real cat food, and Art Deco. Kill me now because life can’t possibly get better than this moment.

It’s OK to say it’s the Marine Building in Vancouver, Canada… (one of the Artest Fuckingest Decoest buildings ever built).

The Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco / open to pedestrian traffic only, during its opening in May 1937 (top) and on its 50th anniversary in May 1987 (bottom).

In 1987, the weight of the 300,000 people that crossed the bridge caused it to sag by 5 feet.

Simple but pretty one-story building in Torrance.

Thank you Wendy, for inspiring me to Tumbl.

Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, Calfornia. Originally the Wilshire Theater. More pictures from this day of picture taking HERE.

Stay Gold, PonyBoy. Art Deco from the classic movie ‘The Outsiders’. First pic (featuring C Thomas Howell & the Mighty Duck Man himself) is in front of the Boston Avenue Methodist Church. The second one is Matt Dillon in front of the Bowen Lounge (which was sadly torn down & is still an empty lot: WTF, Tulsa?). >OK, I fixed it, even though I wanted not to due to incorrect usage of ‘its’.
