Winter Bird
Topic: Light and Shadow

Winter Bird

A backlit Marbled Godwit (Limosa fedoa), with bubbles, Manhattan Beach, Los Angeles, 12 December 2006. It's not much of an avian study, but the composition might give you a sense of winter at the beach.

Hollywood Stars

Hollywood Stars

This place is crazy. These people are dead, and don't matter - maybe they never did matter. This is a storefront down on Melrose Avenue - Aardvark's. Make of it what you will.

Christmas - Traditional and Non-Traditional
Topic: Seasonal

Christmas - Traditional and Non-Traditional

The Guaranty Building for the Guaranty Building and Loan Association, 6331 Hollywood Boulevard, 1923, John C. Austin, architect. Charlie Chaplin and Cecil B. DeMille invested in this building that attracted tenants like gossip columnist Hedda Hopper. Now it is the headquarters of the Church Of Scientology International. Nice Wreath.

Across the street at Hollywood and Vine, at Iguana Vintage Clothing, an all American Santa - green neon, the flag, the jazzman and the reflection of a palm tree in the glass.

Winter in LA is best thought of as a negative - this, the beach at the end of the north runway at LAX.

Judgmental Birds
Topic: Birds

Judgmental Birds

Maybe Hitchcock was onto something, although the story was from Daphne Du Maurier and the screenplay by Evan Hunter. These birds, at the Playa del Rey lagoon on 12 December, seem to know something. Think of them as a jury. They may not like us at all.
