A great photo journal of an empty Los Angeles.
Images of LA city streets and well known locations...eerily devoid of the people who would normally inhabit it. Logue delivers a literal interpretation of his title: a Los Angeles devoid of inhabitants—no freeway traffic jams, cars, crowded sidewalks or, really, any people at all. Instead, the city has been stripped bare to its concrete bones, creating haunting and eerily empty canyons, playgrounds and beaches. The photos were made over a period of four years, and perhaps it won’t come as a surprise that Logue works for L.A.’s biggest industry: the movies.Wildfires in Southern California - The Big Picture - Boston.com
Angeles National Forest, in the hills outside of Los Angeles currently has several wildfires tearing through it, the largest of which - named the Station Fire - has so far burned over 140,000 acres, destroyed nearly 100 structures, and claimed the lives of two firefighters whose vehicle fell from a road into a steep canyon. Evacuation orders are in place for thousands in communities around the city, and residents of Los Angeles itself are contending with thick smoke and ash hanging in the air, causing air quality to drop to unhealthful levels in many parts. Currently, the Station Fire is estimated to be 22% contained, and favorable weather appears to be aiding the efforts of the firefighters.
