Santa on the Rooftop in Bel Air

There was a time when Santa would rap his greetings here atop the Fresh Prince’s house in Bel Air but not so much these days.  Will Smith has moved on (and over toward Calabasas) and the new residents speak more conventional English.  Our private luxury tour guests always love seeing this very visible colonial mansion…

November in Los Angeles at the Terranea Resort

The Palos Verdes Peninsula is one of the most beautiful locations around Los Angeles, like a mini-mountain pouring into the sea.  At the foot of the peninsula is the Terranea Resort, a 102-acre, 582 room hotel and spa with a 9-hole golf course looking out to the Channel Islands.  The shot above was captured at…
