Hollywood Sign Jump
With a Big Private Tour Family This Photo Is a Challenge
As difficult as it might be to get everyone in the air at the same time, jumping for joy at being so near the famous Hollywood Sign, everyone always has a good time getting this photograph into their tour album. Thankfully we have a very good SLR camera that we use to take photos of our guests throughout their private Los Angeles tour with us so we can “machine gun” photos in the strong Southern California sunlight. We have to keep everyone away from the cactus and thistles that are abundant up here on the side of the mountain where the sign is situated. By the way, the sign just passed it’s 93rd anniversary. It was in July of 1923 that the first Hollywood Sign was completed and illuminated. History buffs as well as our guests will know that the first sign read HOLLYWOODLAND and was merely a giant hillside billboard for the housing development springing up below. Now, 93 years later, she is a symbol of our entertainment industry known throughout the world. No wonder the excitement of being here lifts everyone off their feet…almost everybody.
