Domes, Palos Verdes

Art based on a photo by legendary photographer Leroy Grannis of Charles Baughman and Roy Haggard over ‘the domes’ site at Palos Verdes, California

The ‘domes’ are the radomes of San Pedro Hill radar station. Few photos seem to exist of this site and no photos here include the domes themselves.

We finally got kicked out of there by the nearby home owners who didn’t like the dust from the road down to the LZ, which went directly behind their homes.
