The Bradbury Building in Downtown L.A.…

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009 by calixton

…2009 vs. 2019. About two weeks ago, Miss T and I spent a hot summer’s afternoon in Downtown Los Angeles at the Bradbury Building, current home of the L.A.P.D. Internal Affairs department and future home of J.F. Sebastian in Blade Runner. On the day we visited, it was hot, bright, and the Bradbury appeared as […]

Things with shells…

…crabs, clams, barnacles, beaches, seagulls (when they’re eating shellfish). From Miss T’s and my San Diego trip earlier this month: 10 Shellfish and Environs photos.

Off I-5…

…near Bakersfield. Miss T and I recently took a road trip down to SoCal. There’re basically two ways to drive between Northern and Southern California—the coast route (US 101) and the inland route (I-5).

…or both? Miss T and I spotted these in a back alley in Davis last week. I’m not particularly fond of graffiti—it’s typically crude and artless. I’m not sure if this “Collateral Damage” is a band, album, or political statement. It did catch our attention, though.

Fireworks…

…from Fourth of July, natch. If you didn’t see fireworks, you can view 10 July 4th Fireworks photos at maxpixpix on Picasa. Hope you all had a great holiday (if you’re in the U.S. or a U.S. territory—otherwise, hope you had a good Saturday).

Flora and fauna…

…fauna being primarily ducks (I see a trend forming here). Miss T and I recently took a late morning walk through the south end of the UC Davis Arboretum. It was only for about an hour-and-a-half, but the 90° temps had me panting like a St. Bernard by the time we headed back for the […]
