Hotaling Street Plutocracy


Hotaling Street Plutocracy, originally uploaded by deanv41.

There is a private club on Hotaling Street at the base of the Transamerican Pyramid that plays host to the power people. I once saw Diane Feinstein pull up in an SUV and emerge in a flurry of scarves to enter the dark confines of this restricted sanctuary. It has a lovely frieze of what seems to be a god holding symbols of fertility. Across the street is a pricey antiques store. I shot this through the store's window reflection. It reminds me of something from the Greek Classical Period with a hint of the 20th century bleeding through.
