ok, sunset pictures.
i know, the internet is overloaded with sunset pictures. but, in my defense, tonight's sunset was REALLY awe inspiring.
let me try to justify a sunset picture somehow, to see if there's some architectural merit to it... um. there are buildings in the sunset picture? and some of them are probably really interesting? paltry justification, i know.
how about the oddness of l.a, with the megalopolis spread out to the left (well, a part of it), the coyote filled hills on the right (well, part of them), and the gigantic flaming sky overhead and the strip of ocean spreading out to... new zealand? fiji? somewhere exotic, i'm sure.
so, maybe no architectural significance, but as a portrait of a city it's fairly telling, with the juxtaposition of city and hills and sky and ocean. and now the sun has set and the frogs are being very loud (i have a lot of frogs up here) and the coyotes are yelling at each other and the crickets are cricketing. all the sounds of a typical urban night. oh, and there goes a helicopter.
in any case, here's tonights amazing (and yes, architecturally irrelevant) sunset. (tomorrow there will be architecture again, i promise. maybe not as awesome as the purple spaceship church, but something good. i hope).
