Goodbye, Lumberjacks?

I have never seen logging done this fast and this efficiently.  Whoever designed this beast must've been a Transformers fan because it really looks and acts like a Decepticon.  Watch this thing in action - it's both mesmerizing and kind of scary at the same time.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Hollyhock House

As some of you know, especially for all you Los Angelenos, Frank Lloyd Wright's Hollyhock House in Barnsdall Park was reopened recently to rave reviews.  I was able to take a tour of this amazing place and to see other visitors' jaws drop is a testament to the time, money and effort that went into restoring this treasure.  It's not Fallingwater but it would be really unfair to compare one unique and iconic place to another.  Each has it's own history and story and Hollyhock House definitely has a story all it's own.  If you ever get a chance, take some time to visit this place and take in the details and craftsmanship of not only the structure itself but all the amazing furnishings and objects that were made specifically for this house.
