guess what #3

Everyone seems to be enjoying these 'guess what' posts...So, here is another one. This is #3 in the series. I am having fun creating them, and I hope you all are having as much fun guessing what each of these things are--is?.....Well, English has always been a problem for me....lol....Anyway.....See what you think about this one, above.

Plus.....Here are a few more pictures of interest.....This darling little doggie--Finn, walks up the Hill from Outpost Drive below, every day with his Mama....Isn't he cute? I first met them about a week ago.....I'm out there on the sidewalk every day taking pictures of the Hawk Family....And little Finn just kind of grabbed my heart..... He is a very sweet little guy....three years old and very feisty yet shy, too....He let me take these pictures of him and next time hopefully it won't be so late in the afternoon...... And, remember this pretty building? Well......here below, is what it looked like today----a bit overcast but you can see what has taken place, once again.....! UGH! Back to this really awful Advertising, once again....And it always seems to be Movies...... The Greed Factor is just horrific! I think it is extremely ugly in every respect.....I love Harrison Ford, but.....but......but.....Something really must be done about all the Visual Pollution, and soon!





More To Come.........

Well at least the visual pollution IS Harrison Ford. Count yourself lucky. But you are right, something has to be done about all those HUGE billboards - it just seems, well, wrong.

What a cute dog but I put my money on it being a little yap yap...

As for the 'guess what', well, I simply have no idea. no idea at all... (Prehaps a wash cloth, tea towel?)

I had a couple of ideas about the guess what # 3 photo:

1) a Rice/Corn/or Wheat Chex cereal square.

2) any cereal square (like shredded wheat, for example)

3) a waffle weave towel

4) a wicker chair (up real close!)

5) a trunk of a bamboo tree/plant

6) guessing a weaved basket was just too obvious, so I know it is not that.

Waiting to find out what it is,
Anne

I am guessing it is a piece of cloth? a towel? I think I am sure it is not a flower, lol!
I'd rather have a visit from Harrison Ford than the view of that huge banner...
The doggie is cute and what a fine name: Finn sounds wonderful!

This is a TOTALLY wild guess, but is it some kind of retaining wall? It looks like the pattern I've seen on some retaining or "silence" walls I've seen on the interstate.

Gosh, I am HORRIBLE at this game. (But I love it) That pooch is a cutie!

Is it an air filter of some sort? From an AC unit perhaps?

Yes, the ad is AWFUL!!

And what is worse, just last week we lost our most passionate fighter against this and other desecration of our beloved tinsel town. Robert Nudelman, founder and activist of Hollywood Heritage, died very suddenly, leaving a gaping hole in the effort to stem the tide of tear-downs, inappropriate construction, and, yes THOSE building enrobements.

The best memorial we can create for this brave, dedicated man who devoted his life to fighting blight and getting it right, is a strong, ongoing effort to carry on his work.

So, for all of you in L.A., write, call, email your elected representatives. And in the next election, do your homework. Find out who is in whose pocket, and TURN THE RASCALS OUT!

For all of you out there, support us by notifying the Hollywood chamber of commerce, city tourism office etc. that you want to come to a clean, safe, restored Hollywood, not a honky-tonk.

In rememberance of Robert Nudelman, overcome the lethargy and ACT!

The little dog has a lovely intelligent face.
As for the puzzle it reminds me of the canvas one used to do tapestry on, but I don't feel very confident with that:)
BTW Melody all little dogs yap especially corgis.

It's an Easter basket! That's my guess. I love Harrison Ford, too, but not what they're doing to those buildings!

Fin is darling!

I don't know for sure what your photo is - but it looks like some sort of woven upholstery to me.

Let me guess - a blanket??

Oh Finn looks simply adorable!!!

Found you via the blog one thing I Hate about today.

That looks to me like the rubber backing on a throw rug. Could I be right?

That's one huge pic of Harrison Ford!

Do ads just constantly have to be shoved down our throats? It is visual pollution...but I am going to go see that movie. They didn't have to put it on a building, the old ones will carry it. And Harrison Ford is so cool.

I liked Finn, he is adorable.

I think it is some kind of rope weave...maybe a sofa fabric?

The underside of a throw rug for poolside.

My guess is either a brick or another funky cactus.

That's one cute puppy.

I guess I'm just weird, but I love the giant Harrison Ford poster and wish I could put it on my roof.

although I absolutely love Harrison Ford.. and love Indiana Jones even MORE... I still do not like things shoved in my face like an advertisement that large!..(plus it still defaces the building)

I think you are fooling us around here. Smart as you are.

I will not comment the vulgarity of that building.

But Finn is very interesting. As a Name. Anna's oldest brother has that name. At the same time: Finn, in Noreweigian means: Find.

tiens tiens, as they say in France.

Here Summer came and went away in one week. We are used to it. But - grrr - also very frustrating. It's very hard to plan what to do the next day.

Finn is a true cutie pie.

It seems when it comes to the media, there is nothing that can't be sold. (yes, double negative)
It seems even our so-called "news" shows are nothing but propaganda.
