I've had a chance to take a quick look through the two Berkeley shoots and I like what I see. I'll probably post one around the end of the week (not the 11th - so if it's not up by the 10th it won't be until the 12th) and then the other the Friday after. Don't be shocked if I post it on Facebook a day or two before anywhere else as a thank you to the folks who have signed up over there.

Things are going well here. The weather's good, the fire in LA avoided relatives and the important bits of Mt. Wilson (thanks to the 4,600 firefighters working the fire) although last I saw 157,000 acres were burnt which is a bit hard to wrap my head around and it's still only 56% contained. People are throwing stats around like 2.5 million gallons of water used. I haven't seen a cost figure - they actually factor this kind of thing into the budget (There's always a fire or mudslides or something) but it still can't be pretty. Speaking of which, print sales are still low compared to last year but have perked up since the worst part of the summer. I'm just going to have to hope that there's a decent Christmas/winter season and go from there.

Oh, and the LA Times has some remarkable pictures of the fire.
