So there's one particular building I've always had an interest in shooting since I moved here. However, its location makes it very hard to shoot (it's at a busy intersection). So I waited until about 4am last night, and then went out to shoot it:

I have my back right up against the wall at 24mm, and it's still not enough! Argh! I wish I had either a total wide-angle lens (15mm fisheye!) or a tilt-shift lens to correct the angle. The alternative is to shoot it on the street, angling up towards the top-left of the building (and avoid getting hit by a car). Will have to try again some other time.

. . .

Anyways, as I came back from shooting this, I noticed my next-door neighbors just chilling outside their door. Apparently they got locked out (doh!). And when they called a locksmith, the "emergency" rate was $300 (dear, lord!). So I let my neighbor and his girlfriend (I'm assuming) crash at my place last night. The guy's really interesting - he used to work in software, now he works in sales ... and he knows a lot about fishtanks and technology. How serendipitous.

So now I officially know my neighbors, a feat I had (in the back of my mind) wanted to accomplish at some point.

But I forgot his name this morning. Crap.

. . .

Sunset is at 7:23PM tonight. Hopefully I'll be down in La Jolla, shooting a nice sunset. Gives me an excuse to chill by the beach.

You make me really miss my home.

I like that the black SUV with shiny rims is there. Really adds to the picture. Like something shady is going down...
