Since the previous thread is off on a tangent (and a GOOD tangent!), I thought I'd start a new one to show everyone how the work is being done. (I don't know when the next BIG photo update will appear on LP.)

Viewed from across Pacific Wharf:

And a closeup:

They are adding fully dimensional rock work to the back of the mountains. So... one less think to kvetch about.

Do you have to belong to photobucket to see the shots? I can't see them for some reason. Do you have to make them public or something?

As far as I know, it's a public file...

"Since the previous thread is off on a tangent (and a GOOD tangent!)"

You mean the same tangent that happens in nearly every long-ish topic (tooning of the parks)? Is that the good tangent?

<-- haven't been to the parks in person for almost 3 years.

When you're walking through DCA, are the high-power lines, Anaheim Convention Center, and The Inn at the Park all masked from view by this new mountain range?

Where the mountain range appears, the outside world disappears. So yes, it's doing the job.

The INN AT THE PARK? LOL. I bet you and I might be the only people here who know what and where that is.

LOL Hans. I know it's not been that for years, but I still call it that. And the Global Van Lines building when you turn off the freeway onto Harbor Blvd? It's still there too. :)

While I'm really glad that they are doing something (an more than just a flat painting even), I'm still a little concerned about how flat the overall result will be. The 'front' sides of the mountain have tons of movement and shape to them, while this addition seems more like heavy texture. While the new rocks are actually 3D, there's just not a whole lot of variation given the scale and length of that rock face, so it still comes off looking a little flat. I'm waiting until I see it in person, but I'm worried that the sharp corner to the right of the wheelwell arch will still be there once the project is finished.
