Change of pace …
Imagine our surprise, first off, that the air was so clean in the Los Angeles Basin that you could touch Catalina Island, and second, that our free upgrade from Budget stepped us up to this 12-cylinder red rocket! There's one in every other Malibu carport. (we wish... we actually drove my mother's '97 Camry)
SUMMIT COUNTY — For a little relief from the Summit County scenics, Breckenridge ski patroller, photographer and fishing guide Matt Krane shared a few pictures from a recent visit to California, with images of some notable buildings reflecting his passion for architectural photography.

A perfect example of old-school beach architecture, late sixties, all wood and glass, beautiful angles, right on the sand (owned by Dick Clark). As you can see in the background, something more modern and perhaps monstruous is not too far off.
Persia meets West Coast. In the foreground is a 'Persian Palace' made of spectacular granite, polished obsidian, copper roofing ...y et, construction was halted due to the instability of a hillside directly behind the structure ... and the financial troubles of a prominent oil heiress — a shame. Next door is a fine example of the concrete/steel/tinted glass which began to earmark modern beach architecture more than a decade ago.
Friends of ours have owned a Richard Neutra-(search him, a groundbreaking architect from the mid-1900s)-designed cliff house for many years, but only recently gave it the make-over it deserved. Almost 100 ft. of sliding glass in the master suite reveals miles of coastline. Notice how the deck planking mirrors the inside flooring.
Glass everywhere: This is a glass-meets-glass 75-degree inside corner downstairs. In Malibu, a plethora of surfboards and satellite dishes abound.
A fleeting glimpse of Cher's 'bluff' residenc e... several hundred yards of royal palms provide a hint of Hawaii and a decent sound barrier to the white noise of the Pacific Coast Highway. Below the home is an incredible piece of rugged Malibu coastline, complete with seals, whale sightings, and squadrons of brown pelicans who've made an amazing comeback since the widespread use of DDT was stopped.
