UK Trip 2022 Diary, Part 01 …

Three years in the making! Once in a lifetime trip! All that hyperbole is true. And in the end (which should be about three posts from now, including this one), I had what may amount to the best—and longest—trip of my life. I began planning this trip pre-pandemic in early 2020. While I had been... Continue Reading →

September 2022 Books …

A shortened reading month, as I took a long trip and left the iPad (and Kindle) at home, but I did buy a ton of books in the UK (okay … 15 or so, plus 8 vintage paperbacks in lovely Hay-on-Wye), so there's much more to come. The Church of Baseball by Ron Shelton If... Continue Reading →

Fun with Funko Fridays #04 …

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 →

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 →

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 →
