Photo was taken in the gardens at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, California. I was standing there getting ready to take this picture and all of a sudden heard a lot of noise coming from a backhoe behind the trees on the left. Seems the motor blew out and smoke came pouring out into the air. Got two shots off and the smoke subsided just as quickly as it appeared. Thought the smoke gave the picture some atmosphere and chose this over the normal looking scene. Used a Nikon D2x and 17-55mm lens for the shot.
