7th Aug 2017 – A Wild Jerusalem Sphere Appears!

A Wild Jerusalem Sphere Appears!

A Wild Jerusalem Sphere Appears!

In Malibu one day, I came across this objet d’art in an acquaintance’s home. At the time, I thought that it was interesting, and maybe it was a small model of Jerusalem? Apparently, I was right on both counts, as it was indeed the city of Jerusalem in the form of a sphere. Frank Meisler designed the concept inspired by Mediæval maps which depicted Jerusalem as a circular city at the centre – the navel – of the world from which all distances to other cities were measured. The sculpture depicts the spirit of the city, its ancient walls and buildings of many styles, periods and cultures. It is mounted on a marble base the sphere is revolvable, and forged of metal silver and gold plated. And you can see the Malibu coastline of the Pacific Ocean in the background…

Walter Koenig- Hollywood Star on the Walk of Fame

Here we have Walter Koenig, who is best know for his portrayal of Pavel Chekov in Star Trek, (as well as PsiCop Alfred Bester on Babylon 5), receiving his star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood. With its placement, the entire Star Trek main cast has stars on the WoH. Several Star Trek cast members, (such as George Takei (and his husband Brad) and the late Leonard Nimoy), were in attendance, as was a large group of press and fans. This shot was moments after the unveiling…

Photograph of an African-American model of Igbo descent in front of a bush in bloom. This was taken in Michigan some time ago, but I enjoy the contrasting colors and the naturalistic look of the shot…

Griffith in Review

Griffith in Review

Griffith Observatory is a facility in Los Angeles, California sitting on the south-facing slope of Mount Hollywood in Los Angeles’ Griffith Park. It commands a view of the Los Angeles Basin, including Downtown Los Angeles to the southeast, Hollywood to the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the southwest. The observatory is a popular tourist attraction with an excellent view of the Hollywood sign, and an extensive array of space and science-related displays. The Griffth is Southern California’s gateway to the cosmos! Visitors can look through telescopes, explore exhibits, see live shows in the Samuel Oschin Planetarium, and enjoy spectacular views of Los Angeles and the Hollywood Sign.

Griffith Observatory’s unique architecture and setting, compelling programmatic offerings, and cinematic exposure have made it one of the most famous and visited landmarks in southern California. Tens of millions have come to walk the inside of the building, view the live planetarium shows, or simply gaze out towards the coast and the heavens. This cultural and scientific icon owes its existence to the dream of one man, Griffith Jenkins Griffith, and to the dedicated scientists and public servants who worked to fulfill his vision of making astronomy and observation accessible to all.
