Little Britain and topiary scouting

If you’ve followed my neighborhood Holga work, you’ve probably noticed I’m drawn to yards with interesting plants and shrubs. I’ve been meaning to do some research on topiary in my area. I happened to watch the first season of Little Britain over the last few nights. Quite a funny show, and it features a running topiary gag. I paused the DVD a few times to take screenshots of the topiary. The next day I was given a map that has 3 topiary locations in Berkeley. The screenshots and results of today’s topiary scouting trip are below. I plan to go back soon and shoot the topiary at night. If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area and know of any topiary locations, please do drop me a line!
