Mount Wilson Hooker 100 Inch Telescope

A weekend visit to the Mount Wilson Observatory

Approaching the observatory, its brightly illuminated dome peeks out from between the trees.

Inside this structure hides the 100 inch Hooker telescope.

Inside the observatory dome structure, the 100 inch Hooker Telescope stands silently in its parked position.

San Fernando Valley Wildfires

The fire flares up as fire crews work the line.

A helicopter makes a water drop.

After the fire. At another location that burned the night before, the fire burned all the way up to the roadway. In the hills above, it still burns. After we left we could see that it flared up again.

20th Century Stonehenge

The sun sets between two modern office towers in Century City, CA.

I shot this image on 35mm film (probably Tri-X Pan 400) nearly 30 years ago - I don't recall the exact year. It was taken either with a 35mm half-frame Olympus Pen-F camera or a full-frame Olympus OM-1 - I don't recall which.

Just today, I came across a print of this shot among some other things I was searching through, so I scanned and processed it for posting here.
