Alan Fogelquist -
I am a non-commercial photographer of landscapes and architecture. My goal as a participant in Google Earth is to provide a detailed view of panoramas, landscape, and architecture of Pacific Palisades and the surrounding micro-region thus contributing to the pool of photographic geographic knowledge of the planet. Pacific Palisades enjoys a Mediterranean climate and beautiful shoreline and mountain vistas within a radius of a few miles or kilometers.
The Pacific Palisades area is also home to many varieties of architecture and places of interest such as the Getty Villa, Saint Matthew's Parish, houses designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the Lake Shrine of the Self Realization Fellowship, Will Rogers State Park, Will Rogers State Beach, and Temescal Gateway Park.
To see some of the better photos in the collection, view those in the "Author's Choice" category.
Here are the correct geographic coordinates for the center of the Pacific Palisades municipality which is improperly marked on Google Earth and Google Maps.
I want to thank all those who visit and comment on the photos in this collection. Whenever I can I will also visit your collections.
There are thousands of beautiful well composed or artistic photos on Google Earth and its nice to be in touch with some of the people who have taken them.
