California Countryside


Some people say that California is a beautiful state. Apparently they haven’t been anywhere else. Southern California is dry desert that has been sun baked. If you think desert is beautiful, then this is the right place for you. Things don’t really start getting green until you are near San Francisco heading north. If you see green anywhere else it is because it has been watered, most likely with sewage water.

Headstand on the Beach


California is full of interesting people. Here is one instance of a person who was walking down the beach and then for no apparent reason stopped and started doing a headstand. He stayed in that position for at least 15 minutes. Then he took a paddle board out into the ocean and started doing a headstand on the paddle board. Maybe this is some new kind of fitness program.

Southern California Style


When it comes to Southern California there is a certain style about the cars most likely due to a large hispanic population. You can find anything from Chevy Imapala’s that are tricked out to cars like this Monte Carlo that has hydraulics and a pretty smooth paint job.

Women’s Empowerment


I went hiking in Los Angeles and Adidas was sponsoring a women’s empowerment event.  I don’t know much about women’s empowerment, but from what I could see the majority of women were wearing yoga pants and they kept getting in lines after they made their Adidas purchase at these different stations.  The different stations would have different messages and have women do different things to try to gain a different perspective on life.  It kind of looked like a bunch of self esteem and make you feel good type of stuff, but more importantly it looked like a different way to sell shoes and make women feel good about themselves. I guess if that’s how you have to sell shoes, good on you for finding a different way, but I’m curious as to if they host men’s empowerment events like this. If they don’t that seems kind of sexist and that they are preying on a woman just so they can sell products.

Las Vegas Mural


While in Las Vegas, Nevada I went to check out the Pawn Stars shop and right across the street were some pretty nice murals. The paintings showed Las Vegas Route 66, The Beatles, the Sands, The Dunes and the Flamingo. I thought it looked pretty cool and since someone went through all the trouble to pain it I took a photo.

A Date Which Will Live in Infamy…


The last time I was in Washington D.C. I snapped this photo at the World War II Monument looking towards the Washington Monument to recognize the date of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

No Ducking Around


While eating this duck came up and looked like he was hoping I would feed it, but instead I just snapped a photo.

La Jolla Children’s Pool and Harbor Seals


Not far from downtown La Jolla is a children’s pool that has been permanently taken over by harbor seals.  If you are ever in the area it is nice to go watch the seals and take in the coastal area. You will be able to find lots of things to see around there. Anything from watching the waves, to painters, to fisherman, surfers or hang around and watch the harbor seals.
