Daily Photo – Secret Meetings in Hollywood

This photo was taken in Los Angeles (Santa Monica to be exact) after I got finished with one of those Hollywood Power-Lunches you always hear about. I’m not yet ready to talk about it… but I just wanted to put out a little teaser for you. I’ll be sure to put out the full story when it is ready to be told.

So, anyway, after the meeting I took my camera and tripod across a few streets over to the beach. I’m not sure, but I’m fairly certain this is where they filmed the opening to Three’s Company. It’s burned into some deep layer… strange bits of my 70’s brain were firing away as I was walking down the coast. The palm trees and the blue sky — they were so LA — so I set up to grab a shot.


  • Love the great colors and how well the sun is controlled yet so much detail is still visible – especially in the palm tree. Great work!

    Wonderful shot Trey,
    Just bought your E-Book with bonus, i must say it’s very well written and very well thought out, certainly something i have been thinking about doing for a while, since i’ve just got back into photography since the beginning of the year.
    What with file sizes being so huge nowadays, this is a a real must.
    Great stuff Trey.
    All the best

    Such a lovely picture. Really brings the summer ‘feel’ I like very much. I wish my camera could handle HDR photography a little better, but being a student with hardly any money wont allow me to upgrade.

    Can’t wait for the next one!

  • Thanks very much!

    Mike – glad you like the ebook!

    Trey, can you read my mind? The ebook is exactly about the things, that i was thinking about for the last 2 month!!! Thank you so much for that. Oh, nice picture by the way! 😉

  • Picture amazing as always. I think you are very close to where I proposed to my ex-wife. That spot looks familiar. And the map thing was cool. Great to see where all the fans are at. Have you anything like that map that shows everywhere YOU have gone so far? That would be amazing. Might be easier to show where you have NOT been.

    Wonderful shot Trey – the sky is awesome!The newsletter is first class as usual – Thanks!

  • Hi! I always like looking through your shots, but this time I’m quite surprised by the masking around the palm tree trunk and even a bit around the top of the tree. The difference in the sky colour is quite obvious and it’s a shame because otherwise the shot looks great.

  • Dear little Adelaide in South Australia didn’t show up.
