The Guardians

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.

Church – Alameda Ave

As I mentioned here I stopped by this building earlier this week to get a few pictures as I find it an interesting building.  I’ve always been interested in churches as architectural subjects as they often differ from the norm.  Here in California particularly they often stand out from their surrounding neighbours as they are commonly in commercial or industrial areas where  boring cubes dominate.

I was lucky enough to get there as the sun was getting lower in the sky which gave me some nice light and shadows.

Here are a few images Continue reading “Church – Alameda Ave”
