Taken on the top of Hollywood Hills

When I go up to the top and look down at the city, it amazes me every time how complex and intense suchs a city as LA is. How we all live together like this in an ocean of little sparkling lights.

I've... seen things you people wouldn't believe... attack-ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion... I watched, SeaBeams, gitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those... moments.. will be lost, in time... like... Tears.. in rain...

Good Lord, so much electricity used everyday in one place... You don't realize there are places like that if you live in a small city like mine.

Wow, now that's lots of light pollution. :wow:
Incredible amount of wasted electricity you definitely can't see where I live.
Photos like this always amazes me when I see them in Internet.

But anyway, photo is very interesting and these lights look beautiful in some way. Although personally I rather prefer seeing dark sky and stars at night.

Hooollyyyyy Cow! that#s a lotta light. So amazing. Quite mezmerising really, I've just been able to drag my eyes away to write this. It has that feeling of ants in a bowl when you look down on it like that, but it stretches so far!

Truely mind boggling, I love these optical conundrums where your mind can't quite compute what your eyes are sending it. It makes me giddy but giddy with happiness, I love magnificent sights like this haha!

Ja, goed. Heel erg goed zelfs. Heb bijna alweer 5 maanden een vriend. :love:
Ook op school gaat het wel goed. Laatste jaar.
Lekker luieren. Het 4e jaar is echt zó goed geregeld...
Neem bijvoorbeeld deze week. Krijgen we op donderdag (morgen dus) de briefing over het project. Maar maandag/dinsdag/woensdag moeten we officieel aan het project werken.. maarja, gaat beetje moeilijk als je nog geen briefing hebt gehad he? Dus ik ben vandaag maar gaan shoppen.. Maargoed. Zal wel. Over minder dan een jaartje ben ik er hopelijk klaar mee. :D Het is overigens wel gezellig op school. Ik zit nu ook met interactieve vormgeef gasten. :D En hoe gaat het met jou studie? En jezelf? En in de liefde? Nog steeds naar je zin in LA? Ga je met de kerst nog naar huis ofniet? En oud en nieuw in NL of LA?
