Pierce Urban Search and Rescue truck in downtown San Diego.

I really didn't feel like sleeping the night I took this photo, wondering if my family might have to evacuate, when I saw on the Internet that Mount Miguel was burning. So at 1 am, I drove up Mount Helix, which is about a mile from my house and took three rolls of film of the fire on Mt. Miguel which was about three miles away. Taken with a Praktica MTL50 35 mm SLR, Fujifilm 200 DIN color film, 50 mm lens (not cropped), f1.8 with a 3 sec. exposure, developed at Costco, scanned by them. I didn't have a tripod, so I put the camera on a stone wall to take the shot. Those white spots in the upper left corner are stars.

The lovely purple band in the background is actually smoke from the San Diego County fires. The air is so thick you brush the ash off your body and it burns your eyes. This picture was taken in LaJolla west of the fires. The color is from the camera with a UV lens.
