Huge fire that started today on the Hollywood Hills. I was driving around forever (in horrible traffic) trying to find somewhere to get a good shot. A shot that didn't have a billboard or a lightpost blocking my view. I'll tell you, it was hard. I finally saw a staircase to a building that led me to a second floor (outside). We stood there waiting for the Hollywood Sign to catch fire..luckily after a few hour it was under control..though the Hollywood sign on fire would be an awesome picture (hate to admit it)..haha. I'm glad no homes or lives were lost. (I enhanced the contrast a bit cause the smoke was kinda hard to see)
**Thanks everyone for the kind words...it's inspiring because I'm still learning.
