LA Night

LA Night

thanks again to adrian bellani, who took the time out to drive me around town. this was my second attempt at photographing the los angeles skyline from the griffith observatory grounds. we tried a couple of nights earlier but the entire landscape was fogged out. on this night… success – and a full moon to boot!!
