“Urbanscapes: the SoCal stretch.”
With a zoom-lens, there is detail to be had in the features at the largest focal lengths. Cutting across greater Los Angeles, this view south along Normandie Avenue (center-right) goes underneath highway US-101 to Wilshire Boulevard (e.g., Equitable Life Building) and beyond. A helicopter from the LAPD Air Support Division is visible on patrol. Above and behind the Equitable tower is the white “faith dome” at the Crenshaw Center complex. The hills of Palos Verdes ascend to the right in the background. At upper-left, plumes of steam rise from the stacks at the Wilmington Plant of the Phillips 66 Los Angeles Refinery. The line-of-sight distance to the refinery from the viewpoint at Griffith Observatory is about 38 kilometres (24 miles).

I can’t put into words how truly thankful I am, to all those who showed up today. Some came so far, others on no sleep, in pain, & even left their newborn!
I’m honored by you sacrificing your most precious gift…your TIME! Just when I thought I couldn’t love each one of you anymore. My heart has grown tenfold to hold & reflect all the love that was shown today.
To say I’m humbled by you all, would be the understatement of century. Thank you to everyone who shared, thank you friends, old, & new!
You are all family…
LA family, I still need a lot more people for TOMORROWS video I’m directing! On camera 50 looks like 25, & 100 looks like 50…
So many have reached out willing to show up, some I would have never expected, & far away. I can never repay you, but I firmly believe you can’t put a price on something you are truly proud to be apart of!
I need everyone there by 12 noon & we will be done, UNDER an hour! The more that are there ready to rock n roll, the faster we’ll be done.
• I need all ages, the more ethnically diverse the better!
• Bring friends!
If for what ever reason your are running late, you can still fill in. But please, please try to be on the X at noon. I promise to get everyone in & out, that how I direct! I don’t make people, “hurry up & wait.”

Politico reports that the Department of Energy’s Office of International Climate and Clean Energy has barred employees from using the term “climate change” in memos. On Thursday, the “Late Late Show” host James Corden took it as an opportunity to coin some rosier terms for natural disasters:
“Instead of ‘climate change,’ you have to say ‘endless summer.’”
“Instead of ‘tornado,’ we’re going to call it ‘fun-time twisty wind.’”
“Earthquakes will now be referred to as ‘dirt twerking.’”
