LA Photos

Here's some recent photos I snapped around Los Angeles last week. The two middle photos were taken at The Grove, a fancy, Disneyland-like shopping complex. The last photo is at Westward Beach in Malibu, the same location from my last post. This is the location in Planet of the Apes were they go in the cave and find the doll.

Planet of the Apes

Recognize this beach? It's Westward Beach in Malibu, also known as the sight of the famous end sequence from Planet of the Apes. This is a secluded area of the beach surrounded by cliffs. I had to climb over rocks to reach it. The beach lies right between Point Dume and Zuma beach. If you're expecting to see the Statue of Liberty you'll be disappointed.

The Bronson Caves (aka The Bat Cave)

Here are some photos taken yesterday at the Bronson Caves in Griffith Park. The cave was used in the original Batman tv show of the 60's and has also been seen in Invasion of the Body Snatchers and Star Trek.
Chris Bancroft, Eric Deuel, and Kevin MacLean at the Bat Cave. Adam West and Burt Ward were at the cave several years ago to film scenes for the reunion movie, Return to the Batcave, above.

Once you walk thru the cave/tunnel you get a great view of the Hollywood sign.
