Griffith Observatory and Downtown Los Angeles

As a follow up to a post I did on January 4, 2015, I am celebrating my all time top selling print which is the Griffith Park Observatory with downtown Los Angeles in the background. On the original post, I was asking for input (Griffith Park Observatory in Black and White) on which prints were favored so I could narrow it down to a few to post in my art gallery. I featured six captures I had narrowed down from a series of them. The three captures I ended up posting in my gallery were #1, #4 & #6 now known as Griffith Observatory and Downtown Los Angeles, Open For The Telescope and Observatory In Art Deco. I thought it would be interesting to see what the vote was from the original post. Number 1 received the most votes with #4 coming in second. #6 didn’t receive votes, but it struck me as a nice compliment to the other two to finish out the series. All in all, all three of the ones I picked have done well, but #1 has blown the roof off.

      Iโ€™ve done well across the board, but this print has outsold everything. The only thing I can figure is that it is such a well known and iconic landmark and this print presents it in a unique way??

      Thank you very much Diana. I initially did the series for my LA daughter and her husband. They have the first one in a 36″X24″ framed print with the other two as accents prints elsewhere in their TV room. Having said that, I never in my wildest dreams expected the first one to take off like it did. Thanks for stopping by and for your feedback! Have a great week!

    I admit it: They’re all beautiful, but #1 is my favourite! I absolutely love the contrast between the classic architecture of the observatory and the highrises in the distance. Well done, Kirt! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Tiffany, weโ€™ll worth the trip up to LA. It is truly a stunning and educational facility that just happens to have a gorgeous view of the LA basin! Thanks for your feedback!! Have a great week!

      Thanks Dan! In reference to the first image, I did a few shots from that side of the Observatory with downtown LA in the background and fell in love with this shot. Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the feedback!
