The view of Griffith park from my window last night was pretty amazing - the Observatory, shrouded by smoke, with growing flames nearby. I remember waking up at 2:00am and going to the window to see a too-dark hillside dominated by fiery flames. After going back to sleep, I woke up at 6:30 to see the flames gone, the Observatory intact, and lots and lots of smoke.
This blog would be the perfect place for me to post my own photos of the fire but there are three problems:
1. My camera is somewhere in Glendale.
2. My camera's lithium batteries are somewhere in Silverlake.
3. My other camera (the one on the cell phone) isn't of the highest quality.
(In a few weeks, this won't be as much of an issue because there will more cameras in the apartment. Can't wait.)
So the photo here is from the L.A. Times.
