Los Angeles, CA

I would not call Los Angeles beautiful.  But for a moment, as I sat in traffic as the sun was setting, the light and the stillness looked like this.



Ahh, Fiji.  The Mamanuca Islands, the Yasawa Islands, Port Denarau, Cloudbreak.  330 islands in one country.  The bluest-greenest ocean you’ve ever seen.  Snorkel, surf, dive = joy and wonder.



Seattle, WA

The Frye Museum is a nice little museum.  One exhibit was Jim Woodring’s “The Pig Went Down to the Harbor at Sunrise and Wept.”  The artist drew these cartoons in ink using a giant oversize dip pen he created himself.


Folly Beach, South Carolina

Christmas by the beach, both foggy and sunny!

Providence, Downcity

Downtown Providence, on the way to Symposium Books.  The parking hut closed up on Sunday.


Minneapolis, Fall Leaves

First week of November in Minneapolis .. it snowed 5 days after I took this photo!

Old Post Office Pavilion, Washington, DC

I used to work in this beautiful building in Washington, DC.  Trump has leased it and is turning it into a luxury hotel, but as it is a Federal property he has to keep the façade intact and allow public access to the clock tower.


Rittenhouse Square

I saw the sights of Philadelphia, among them the Barnes Foundation, Benjamin Franklin’s resting place, giant murals, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art with its Rocky steps and statue.  But it was this contraption that caught my eye, near Rittenhouse Square.  I’d not seen that before.  :)


Expo Line

I rode the new Expo line for the first time.  Woohoo!  It was so odd taking public transportation in Los Angeles.  LA is finally catching up to the rest of the world!


Whole Lotta Beans

I was at a Chinese restaurant in San Francisco having tasty chicken wings, and some of the staff there were prepping for dinner.   I think those green beans originally filled up that entire box!
