Doug. You have a discerning eye, but we both know that. I just say - whatever... Why does a hack musician get a high profile gig?
Kenny - That property is at the very top of a long thin ridge with a steep dropoff out the living room window. I'm pretty sure that everything is anchored in bedrock and most of those homes up there have been through multiple quakes including the largest most recent Northridge '94 without much issue or damage. The weird thing is that you can never predict where the most damage is going to be. In that 94 quake, while there WAS a lot of damage in Northridge where the epicenter was, there was also a lot in Santa Monica as well, where I personally saw complete sides of apartment complexes come off leaving them looking like giant doll houses, and then leaving my studio in Venice at the time absolutely untouched save for a couple rolls of seamless falling over.
Most of these were shot with Canon tilt-shift lenses, so you level the camera out and shift to frame your shot. The one from the second floor looking through the A frame was with the 11-24mm zoom at 12mm, but I was able to shoot with the camera exactly level - or at least as close as I could, then fine tune in post. Actually, even when shooting carefully with the tilt-shift lenses, you still have to tweak them slightly to get them perfect, and then sometimes, like with the kitchen shot, you have to correct different areas of the image separately - y'know - some old houses are just not that straight anymore - mostly due to those damned earthquakes. But at least they're still standing.
