I support the Screen Actors Guild National Board of Directors

"I support the Screen Actors Guild National Board of Directors request for members to vote YES to empower the National Board to decide whether to call a TV/Theatrical contract strike, and if so, determine its timeframe.

We must arm our negotiating committee with the collective unity and strength of the Screen Actors Guild Members."

Hanna-Barbera - HDR

So dark, I kind of like the other, brighter "fake" HDR photos. This is the only one that I finished all the photoshop steps on, somehow I don't like it as much. By the way, this used to be the Hanna-Barbera building.

Downtown Los Angeles - HDR

Yeah, that's right, I can turn my photos into awesome postcards from the 60's with my "fake" HDR effect. The view is from the restored Griffith Park Observatory.

Santa Barbara Plaza - HDR

This looks like a travel postcard, but it's just a "fake" HDR effect. This is a landmark plaza in Santa Barbara, hidden in plain site right next to their city hall!

Capitol Records - Stacked - HDR

My favorite "fake" HDR photo. The Capitol Records Building and some parked cars on hydraulic lifts.

Mysterious Case of Disappearing Acorns - Squirrels Starving

Similar to the Bee Colony Hive Collapse, now acorns are missing from the food chain. The squirrels will be hungry. The best guess as to what the squirrels will now do for food is a rather chilling one. It is obvious. Our flee-ridden bags of fur will turn towards eating human flesh.
