…in all the world, she walks into mine.
Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday to ya’ll!
It seems I keep forgetting to get to these Weekly Wednesday blogs. Mostly because we’ve been busy shooting, working on a couple of great weddings, and a few other projects. I even realized this morning that we haven’t even blogged any of the pics from our trip to Hawaii over a month ago! No new trips planned anytime soon, unless you count heading out to the Phoenix area next weekend to see Dana’s family, and one of her friends that is flying out from Pennsylvania. All I know is that it’s crazy hot out there right now, and it’s right in the middle of my AZ blackout months… so Dana owes me big time!
Last summer, while hanging out with our friends Tanya and Craig, they mentioned that up at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery during the summer they show old movies on the side of a mausoleum. We didn’t get a chance last year to get up there, so when they mentioned it again a couple weeks ago, and that they were showing “Casablanca”, we knew we had to check it out. Last weekend, we packed up the cooler, and hit the road. What a ton of fun! You have to get up there early. We were actually sitting in our car, parked, on Santa Monica Blvd. for about 30 minutes or so before they let us in. Once parked, we grabbed our chairs and blankets, a couple bottles of wine, some assorted snacks, and found a great spot off to the side of the would-be screen. A DJ played some music, until the sun went down, and the movie started. Even for a film nerd like me, I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen Casablanca all the way through. Such a classic. Great story, and really great lighting. (Told ya, I was a nerd). We’re definitely going to be checking out more movies all summer long. If you wanna see the schedule (they only put up a couple weeks at a time), check out Cinespia.org.
“If that plane leaves the ground and you’re not with him, you’ll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.”
So cool! And, of course, your beautiful shot portrays old Hollywood perfectly!
