    EXIF: 57mm ISO 200 1/4 sec f8

    The scattered lights at the bottom are the mansions in the Hollywood Hills area. Few celebrities reside around there. Cluster of buildings in the foremost is Hollywood. Towards the center is Century City and to the right of that is West LA/Westwood where I'm situated.

    The haze is still lingering around so it's not as sharp as I'd like but it's sharp as my eyes saw it in person. =]. Hopefully a quick rain shower will pass through and clear things up and I'll go back and try again.

  13. Foggy morning walk in the park

    There is a nice little lake and surrounding park in my little town, population 600. When I was young swimming was allowed in the lake, but now it's only for the visiting ducks and geese. The park has the obligatory baseball field and children's playground. This lamp post guards one of the paths through the park.
