Coronado Classic. I see a lot of VW wagons around town, including two (a light blue one and a light green one) in one of my building’s parking lots. This red beauty was parked on the streets and I just had to snap her, cropping out the license plate to protect the innocent. Coronado is also the home of numerous golf carts, a sure sign of “island living.” Not sure if it’s the idle rich at play or just let’s abandon the car and take the cart shopping. Either way, it’s just a totally different way of life.

Oh, London … you have stolen my heart many times now. I particularly like this photo taken on the Millennium Bridge on a chilly October Sunday. Obviously there was a race of some sort, but my favorite part of the photo is the woman at the far right, mysteriously hiding her identity. Is she a spy? A tourist? A movie star hiding in plain sight? We’ll never know. It’s just a fleeting moment in time, never to be captured again.

Bookstore cats I have known and loved. I suppose the tradition of bookstore cats started as a practicality … a good mouser is worth his or her weight in gold. But I find any bookstore cat I happen upon to be a charming addition to any shop, and this one—Twice Sold Tales in Seattle, WA—had FOUR (count ’em, FOUR) cats living on the premises. with this particular guy (or gal) being the most photogenic, in my humble opinion.

I’ve visited Leeds three times now and loved it each time. This photo is from my last trip in September of last year. I had never seen this golden owl before, but somehow it seemed like a lost statue honoring Watchmen, which is appropriate, since the Leeds area is home to a particularly great small comics convention called Thought Bubble, which is what drew me to the city in the first place.

Sometimes the best views are close to home. I am so incredibly lucky to live on such a picturesque island as Coronado. This is a short walk from my place and the Coronado Bridge is always a breathtaking sight, although we’ve had high winds lately, and driving across it is no fun when it’s windy. It’s so, so pretty, though!

Last fall, I took a wonderful trip to England, which included the lovely city of York. Believe it or not, this was the view from my hotel window of Clifford’s Tower, part of York Castle and it was taken on the first day I was there. York is an incredible maze of winding cobblestone streets filled with great shops and restaurants and I thoroughly enjoyed my short stay there. The hotel was the Hilton York on (appropriately) Tower Street, and I would stay there again in a heartbeat. Great restaurant downstairs, too!
