Monochrome Saturday

In the morning, I had to go to the post office to send a film magazine for Mamiya RZ67 Pro II that I have sold. I'm slowly getting rid of some of the unnecessary equipment I have. Unfortunatelly a several-pound Mamiya is on the list.

Fairfax Ave. Minimalistic architecture.

Fairfax Ave, where the post office is has very unusual trees covered with thorns.

Once I got back it was time to go to the movies. My wife and I wanted to see "Hateful Eight" for some time in all of its 70mm glory and decided to catch a 3 pm showing. 

Before the movie, we decided to swing by the Stella Barra next to the Arclight's Cinerama Dome. It is our favorite place to eat in that area. They had the best tomato bisque in the world at just $4 a cup. Today, however, they have changed the menu. No more tomato bisque for us (or anybody).

If you're ever at the Stella Barra, try their house-made potato chips. Best junk food we've had in a long time. We did miss the 3 pm movie and the soup though!

Since we've missed the 3pm we had to go to a 7 pm showing. The roof of the Arclight Cinema's parking lot is a great place to do a few captures now and then.

The emergency staircase of the Arclight parking structure has very interesting angles. This one goes to the gallery.

The west side of the parking structure faces Lure. Judging by their parking lot - quite a trashy place. On the other hand - another photo in the Street gallery.

The roof of the Arclight cinemas is great for snapping pictures. Only tonight I realized that you can get a snap of this view.
