Auckland and two Hollywoods

Sunday, making pictures on this clear sunny very much autumn day. At Avondale to the old Hollywood Cinema famous for its regular screenings (complete with rice throwing) of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. And of course for it's wonderful old Wurlitzer organ. Today The Wurlizter Organ Trust had gathered for a performance. To quote from the program "great music and laughter guaranteed ...includes some short slap-stick silent movie comedies..." I arrived just as the happy audience was spilling out and made this picture of an elegant Wurlitzer fan and her Marilyn bag... key in hand she seemed ready for anything. Later in a pile of abandoned junk I found this single Hollywood shoe, sad and lonely, nothing like the other face of Hollywood that I'd just left.....
