End of Day 2: Taking the Hill by surprise!

I planned to join the Signal Hill Hiking Club on the evening of day 2 but ran late and missed the group. Signal Hill reminded me of some allies in Damascus where my grand parents lived and had a nice view of the entire city.  Unlike Damascus, the Long Beach version had a ton of oil rigs(even between the houses) which explains the statues of two oil workers captured in many photos!

the Silent Camera is Kinan Faham's photography moniker. Kinan is a software guy with interests in visual and sonic arts. Through photography and video, he captures the extraordinary in the ordinary. Kinan was born in the oldest continually inhabited city in the world and moved to the states for graduate school. For him, art is a hobby that also forms an essential, inseparable part of his being.. The inspiration for the Silent Camera name came from contemporary composers Arvo Part and John Luther Adams whose compositions defy complex structures in favor of meditative voices and can be linked to space/visual stimuli.
