I was on my way to hike up into the Verdugo hills for some panoramic pics when I saw this. 5AM, running out of "dark". Do I stop and shoot, or hike and catch the sunrise? Tough choice. In the end, I got this AND some panoramas, just not sunrise.
This is Burbanks natural gas fired power plant, right next to their train station. They screened the plant from the station with the palm trees, uplighted with sodium orange lights. The steam really wafts up from the cooling towers, but because of the long exposures, they look like inverted rockets or jets.
5 exposure HDR image with some lightening of the steam to make it whiter.

I have a new 3 part article regarding home owner priorities over on our site, take a look if you're interested. Comments welcome.


Part One:
Different people have different priorities in the life of a house. An owner might want to preserve his investment, or just continue to have a roof over his head. Later, that same person might want to sell the house and his priorities may change to cosmetic concerns to sell the house faster or to raise his return on investment. An investor who has purchased a “fixer-upper” to flip might have cosmetic priorities ONLY, and not be concerned at all about moisture intrusion, the number one enemy of all houses.

Ah, I had the same situation with an old gas bathroom heater. The homeowner did not see it as an issue, because they never used it. The buyers, listening to the seller and their Realtor, thought that I was simply bringing this up to have something for the report, but I pointed out that this was a device that could be seen as a toy by their toddler, who happened to already experimenting with it.

Since umami took over, this isn't your typical fast food stand anymore. Had a burger, sweet potato fries and Bohemia beer on tap. All were excellent, and the service and atmosphere were perfect. I'll be back!

I am an apprentice to Peter Walker, owner of A1, rather than a client. I've shadowed him on many inspections of all types, residential, multifamily and commercial. In every case, Peter has been dependable, extremely knowledgeable, and communicated to his clients the true state of the property in a neutral way they could easily understand. His reports are well organized and easy to read. I would not hesitate to recommend A1 inspections to anyone in Southern California.

My family has been going to Barragans since it opened on Sunset Blvd., and we still make it there once or twice a month at the Burbank location. Excellent Chili Verde, and the best Mole I've ever had. I recommend it to anyone looking for real Mexican food!
