The Old and the New …

Last time I featured a photo from the Farmers Market in Los Angeles, and wrote about how the old and the new were co-existing peacefully, side-by-side, with both the market and The Grove, a trendy mall built right next door. Here's an example of that in-play in Northern California. This photo from San Francisco (just... Continue Reading →

Fun with Funko Fridays #03 …

Once upon a time, I collected Funko POPS! ... still do, kinda, although I'm a lot more specialized now, concentrating mainly on Marvel Comics, MCU, and Marvel Disney+ characters. And once upon a time, i took those Funko POPS! out of the box (GASP!) and made little Photoshop graphics out of them and posted them... Continue Reading →

Stool sample …

I apologize for the gross, punny title. This lovely photo was taken many moons ago at the Farmers Market in Los Angeles, and is also from my filter period, when I used a filter on just about every photo I took. This is from my beginning years on Instagram, way back when. I've since learned... Continue Reading →

Where You’ll Find Me …

Either the luckiest of lucky shots or the most accommodating seagull ever, I'm not sure which it is ... maybe both? This is one of my all-time favorite photos that I've taken and it's one of my most favored spots in the world, on the south bank of the Thames, right by Westminster Bridge and... Continue Reading →

Neon Nights …

One of the best examples of neon in Coronado is this amazing sign on the Villa Capri Motel, opposite the legendary Hotel del Coronado on Orange Avenue. I'm told they don't light it up at night anymore, so I feel lucky to have gotten this shot a few years back, taken—I think—when I walked up... Continue Reading →

August 2022 Books …

A bit more reading this month, once again offset by a stack of graphic novels and comics-related books, but book-ended by a crime thriller by a new (to me) author and the yearly offering from a favorite writer. Missing, Presumed ... by Susie SteinerA vibrant, beautiful young woman from the British upper class goes missing... Continue Reading →

Different Drum …

"You and I travel to the beat of a different drum," the song goes and I'm always reminded of it when I see this photo I took near the Crissy Field area along the bay in San Francisco quite a few years back. I suppose "You've Got to Dance Like Nobody's Watching" would be an... Continue Reading →

Soon (again) …

I hope to travel again soon. That sounds a bit more wistful than it should, but travel these days is no fun, not—at least—like it used to be (or used to SEEM to be). There are too many variables: weather, lack of or strikes by airline employees (the latter in other countries right now), unruly... Continue Reading →

Time Lapse …

These two photos were taken in San Francisco, just hours apart. They were taken at the Herbst Pavilion, which once was part of the Fort Mason Arts and Cultural Center, a former military base converted to facilities for the public. I believe they were taken in October 2014, the last time Comic-Con—my employer at the... Continue Reading →

PCCers Assemble … 50 Years Later!

I spent an enjoyable couple of hours yesterday (Saturday, August 13th) on Zoom, one of those technological “marvels”—along with Slack—that helped convince me to retire. While I vowed to never go on Zoom again for any kind of work-related reason, I was very happy to join my fellow Pittsburgh Comix Club members to reminisce about... Continue Reading →
