We stepped into this glorious old shopping mall yesterday which was devoid of any stores apart from TJMax (same as TKMax if you are from the UK) and a fruit n veg cart. It’s a shame that this has become just a walkway between the carpark and another mall, hopefully they will be able to turn it around; it did look like some work was in progress.
Only took a few snaps as we were on a mission.
I recently had time for a few shots around Burbank city centre and as it was dark I took my tripod to stand my Mamiya C330 on.
This shot was taken outside the Police and Fire department building and is of a large bronze statue which is a tribute to the Fire and Police officers of Burbank. It is by noted artist Shiela Cavalluzzi and was erected around 1998.
I’ve taken a low angle focussing on the firefighter with the Police officer hidden behind.
Saw this interesting piece at a flea market this weekend. It’s not your typical typewriter with the letters on the end of arms that hammer down on a ribbon. This has a wheel which rotates and tilts to the correct letter as you press the key and the brushes over a small inkpad before making its mark – clever engineering and similar in some ways to IBM’s electric ‘golf ball’ design many decades later.
