 Believe it or not!

These are real things

we've seen here in California.


 Well, you can't say California girls don't tell you what to expect.  
 Or warn you of the consequences.  
From a store window in the Bay Area.  
 And then, from a car race...  
What goes on in the stockroom at the SD Museum of Photographic Arts?  
 Here's the coyote that hangs around our place. He just walks in and makes himself at home in broad daylight. I occasionally look out my office window and see him. I shot these photos from only 50 feet away and he was not spooked.  
A bunch of stiffs awaiting cremation? Nope, a pile of cacti awaiting packing for shipment at a nursery.  
Was this really the concrete contractor's name?  
Who would want to be disguised as a dove?  
This is a service station in "Normal Heights." One son lived nearby for a few months and proclaimed that there was nothing normal about Normal Heights.  

 Not to mention Botox injections and liposuction.

In an elevator I saw a vet student carrying a book on "Endoscopy for Animals."

A shot from my son who lives in Venice Beach.  
What do you do when your Lamborghini Countach gets too much trouble to keep driving it? Well, if you live in Newport Beach and are building a new house, you can make it wall art. Here is the LA Times Article.  
I guess if you are a blonde, you learn to live with it.  

 Yep, a fallen angel on the streets of Escondido!

(In the spirit of full disclosure, it was Halloween, 2006, and perhaps relevant that she's standing in front of the door to "F-Street" a local porn shop, next door to the bird store where we get supplies for our flock.)

 And what else would you expect ot find on the back lot at Sony Pictures?  




There's More Coming!
