405 Freeway from the Getty Center

405 Freeway at Night from the Getty Center

The Getty Center is located on the western side of the 405 freeway just as it rises into the Sepulveda Pass from L.A.'s Westside. At the southern end of the Getty there is parapet that runs out to the edge of the site overlooking a cactus garden and the 405 freeway. This is where I took this photo.

In the lower left of the photo you can see the classic shape of the old Holiday Inn Hotel, but which since 2006 is now a boutique hotel known as The Hotel Angeleno. In the distance are the lights of what I believe is Century City, but I am not 100% sure of that. Perhaps if you know the area well, you could post a comment confirming or correcting me.
