The Hollywood sign isn’t just a landmark of Los Angeles but an American cultural icon. Signs often feature in my travel photographs, but rarely do I capture one as famous as this. Surprisingly, it was very difficult to photograph. Even here, there is part of a palm tree covering the lower part of the H. The main problem is that it is very difficult to get anywhere near it. This image was taken from over two miles away on Franklin Avenue and Canyon Drive. The centre of Hollywood is a few miles west of here. That is slightly closer to the sign but the letters are at an angle, so the letters aren’t as clear.
