Photo-finish Friday: out and about
Most university buildings are named after people you have never heard of. This one facing a courtyard at the cinema arts school gets to be an exception (click on the pic for a better look at the name over the doors). The statue atop a fountain surrounded by greenery is a larger than life bronze, or bronze look-alike, of one of the school's founders, Douglas Fairbanks, holding a script in one hand and a fencing sword in the other.
The whole complex has the look of Old Hollywood. I take any excuse to walk through here when I can. Usually thronged with young people between classes, Douglas has a rare moment of relative silence on the set.
Photo-finish Friday is the bright idea of Leah Utas over at The Goat’s Lunchpail.
