    Pretty self explanatory...think this was 5 or 6 shots. If you're in LA, I highly recommend the hike up Mt. Lee to the Hollywood sign. It's a super peaceful spot in the middle of a chaotic city.

    Got bored and decided to test my new 16-85 VRII. Seems to work okay, but I need to test it under different conditions (like, not on a tripod) to see how it really performs.
