Have you ever wondered what a shark would look like if it was sliced?  I was at the Okinawa aquarium and saw exactly that.  You can see the muscle, cartilage, and organs.  Here is what it looks like.

Desert Flowers

Took a walk today and spotted these desert flowers near Otay Ranch, California. I have never seen these types of flowers before, so I snapped a shot.

Ocean Beach Hippie Hostel

I was walking around Ocean Beach and saw this decked out hippie hostel. I think the only thing that was missing was a hippie van parked out front, but that is minor since there are a bunch of hippies and hippie vehicles in Ocean Beach.

Photos Around Monterey, California

Monterey’s Flower Burglar

This morning I was driving to the ocean in Monterey, California in hopes to take some photos of some sea otters when I noticed a movement out of the corner of my eye.  When I looked over there was a young deer walking along the side of a house.  I stopped my car and watched …

Elephant Seals Near San Simeon

As I drove up California Highway 1, I stopped off at a beach near San Simeon to check out some elephant seals. Being that I’ve never seen elephant seals before, I didn’t know what to expect. First off they are very dramatic. They are always making noise and getting into fights where it looks like …

Interesting Vegetation

During my evening walk I came across this huge bushes.  These things had to be at least 9 feet tall and they were big and bushy.  I’ve never seen anything like it.  I don’t know if these are tropical plants or desert plants or whatever they sure were interesting.

Bike Lane Bush 2004 Sticker

Today I took a walk and I saw this bike lane sign with a Lick Bush 2004 sticker on it.  It gave me a chuckle, made me wonder if the sticker has been on that sign since 2004 and made me want to take a photo of it.

Evening View of Point Loma

Here is a photo of the beautiful view of Coronado Island and Point Loma in San Diego, California.

Slices of Early History

Here are some old photos that are wonderful slices of history.  The descriptions are below each photo. The rural kids in the 50’s rode bikes to school.  You took whatever path was best for you.  Bullet holes in the sign? Camping out in 1918.

Ocean Beach Hippie Van

Today I was driving through Ocean Beach in San Diego, California and I saw a hippie van with a couple of hippies inside of it. I thought it was interesting enough to take a photo of. I can’t read everything, but I think the front of the van reads, “Feel the sun. Love the moon.”

Hillary Clinton – Hillary-ous

I was a shopping mall today and I saw this hat. Everything about this woman from her joke of a marriage, to her corruption, to her political aspirations. Everything about Hillary is a complete and utter joke. This hat sums all that up.

Leninade – Get Hammered and Sickled in California

What the heck is happening in the super markets in California? I was in the super market and I came across a beverage called “Leninade” and their slogan is “Get hammered and sickled.” How the heck did something like this make its way into super markets in the United States? What kind of self-loathing, democratic, …

Funny Sign at the Sea Life Aquarium

I was at the Sea Life Aquarium and I saw this sign. The way the sign shows a finger pointing at a fish with a line through it and then the outside fish has a sad face, it looks like the sign is saying, “Don’t point at the fish. It hurts their self esteem.” Maybe …

Donkey Kong is an A-hole!

Donkey Kong is an A-hole! I never knew I would have such strong feelings for a video game character, but I do. I hate him. I hate everything about him. I will show you some proof of why I think he’s an a-hole. First off let me start by saying that only an a-hole would …

The Oscars 2016 第88回アカデミー授賞式

今年のホストはクリス・ロックです。 最多ノミネート作品は、レオナルド・ディカプリオ主演の「The Revenant レヴェナント」で、 次に多かったのが日本でも大ヒットした「マッドマックス怒りのデス・ロード」です。 ディカプリオは初オスカーを手にするかが注目されていますね。 シルベスター・スタローンは1977年にロッキーで主演男優賞にノミネートされて以来だそうです。 長編アニメーション部門で「思い出マーニー」がノミネートされていますね。 受賞すれば千と千尋の神隠し以来の快挙だそうです。 大ファンという訳ではないし詳しくもないのですが、 なぜかアカデミー授賞式前夜に2年連続で訪れてしまったハリウッド。 折角なので写真を撮ってきました。授賞式準備のためにスタッフが働いていました。 去年よりあまり飾り付けされていない印象です。相変わらず人は沢山いました。
