Here is a photo of a sunset taken from my backyard. I'm sad to let you know that I can't keep posting on a regular basis anymore and need to take a hiatus. I hope to be able to start again sometime next year. Thank you all for visiting!

Overworked, underpaid

My brother sent me this photo of a Santa at the mall. Poor guy has a tough job.

A Little Seaside Village

This photo makes me think of Cannery Row or some quaint sea side town. In truth, it's one of the restaurants at Seaport Village. I took this photo between the rain spells we had all day last Saturday. There is a lot going on at Seaport Village this holiday season, you should head down if you haven't been in a while!

Yuma Builiding

I was standing on the upper level of the Horton Plaza parking garage when I took this photo that shows part of the historic Yuma Building on 5th Avenue. The building was built in 1888 and was one of downtown's first brick buildings.

The watering hole

Okay, this will be the last photo of the Leo Carrillo Ranch - hopefully these photos will entice you to visit this great park. I thought this was a nice long view to show the expanse of the property. The visitor guide said that there were once several hundred head of cattle and dozens of horses on the ranch. This set of buildings includes the Cantina, Carriage House, Feed Shed and Tack Shed.
