The sequence above was taken about two months ago, one night shortly after I went to bed. I heard a click, and knew instantly that the power in my building was out (and immediately rushed to my computer, remote hard disks, PS3, XBox and all other electronic gadgets to unplug them from the wall).

Then I looked out and realized that EVERYTHING was dark. I’ve experienced power outages before, but never in L.A. have I seen the entire block dark. So I grabbed my camera and snapped away, until power slowly restored,

Speaking of blackouts, yesterday I finally came home from work at 10:00pm (yuck, especially on a Friday night), and had a quick dinner on my couch. Next thing I know, it was bright outside and 6:00am. Stumbled to bed and finally caught up to sleep from this past week.
