Sunday Post: Billboards: A Modern-Day Totem Pole

Kiosk on Streets of San Francisco

Kiosk on Streets of San Francisco

I was taken by how lonely and isolated this model looked, trapped in a glass box on a cold day on the street corner in San Francisco. I’m safe and warm in my car while other women walk by her not noticing her static icy beauty. I’m sure a lot of work went into this modern-day Totem pole, trying to get us to worship on the altar of extreme wealth.  Come to think of it, I’m glad the gals in jeans and practical shoes are walking on by.

Inspired by Jakes Printers Suggestion of Billboard for Sunday Post.

I didn’t realize I had such a big variety of ways of getting around until I started searching my archives for this weeks Sunday Post Transportation The Space shuttle shot is one of my favorites. We went out to the bay the day it made its final fly-by on the way to LA  Museum. I don’t have any pictures of our local BART trains. Oh Wait but I do have to another local favorite the Ferry Boats that zip around the Bay.

The Nature of February 2nd

The groundhog, may or may not have seen his shadow today. It hasn’t rained this winter in California until today. Now that’s a sigh. Little girls put on bright rubber boots and flowered coats and run in the rain, climb blooming fruit trees. That much joy is infectious and will keep the rain coming!!!

I realized I didn’t have any any dragons or other magical creatures among my thingies but the images on my fans qualify as fantastical I do believe.

Now Nut Crackers are certainly phantasmal

Now Nut Crackers are certainly fanciful! Maybe even a little scary. What do you think?

Sunday Post: California Poppies Attract Bumble Bee

California Poppies attract bumble bees.  Often there are whole hillsides covered in our golden state’s flower, but this year it is very dry. As you can see the leaves are already brown in May and the wildfire season has also started early. Rain is on the way today but not enough to bring back the gold I am afraid.
