A private investor for 20+ years, I manage private portfolios and write about investing. You can read my market musings on three different sites: 1) The Deipnosophist, dedicated to teaching the market's processes and mechanics; 2) Investment Poetry, a subscription site dedicated to real time investment recommendations; and 3) Seeking Alpha, a combination of the other two sites with a mix of reprints from this site and all-original content. See you here, there, or the other site!

A phoenix rising from its ashes

Brian, a resident of LA and friend, sent me this phenomenal photo of the impact of the still-raging fires in Southern California...

Brian notes:
"There is a lot of smoke in the atmosphere due to the fires, and this has affected the sunset. The sunsets are usually not quite as dramatic as this one. I took some photos from my balcony, with no filters and no editing except for a touch of the "Auto Correct" button in Microsoft Office Picture Manager with my el cheapo digital (a $99 5.0 megapixel Kodak). Interestingly, even the cheeseball date stamp is in the range of appropriate colors for that picture."

Thanks, Brian. I am glad to learn that you are okay.
