Thumbs Up on the Street Car

While it may now be a novelty, the red street cars were once the transportation many people depended on to get to their jobs, including my 97 year old mom. She still likes to reminisce about her first job downtown Los Angeles, how she rode the street car to get there, and particuarly about the gentleman who left a gardenia […]

Tall Ships Festival, part 2

This second and final installment is from a week ago when I drove to the Los Angeles Harbor in San Pedro for the Tall Ships Festival (and to see the giant yellow rubber ducky). While I didn’t pay the entry fee to go onto any of the ships, I certainly had plenty to see from […]

Tall Ships Festival, part 1

Driving up the freeway to Los Angeles Harbor this past Friday, I was admittedly super excited at seeing a giant Yellow Rubber Ducky, and secondly, looking forward to the Tall Ships. I’d heard on the radio, actually, that the giant duck had been moved to another area of the Harbor from the original plan, because it was causing too much distraction from the […]

Rubber Ducky, You’re the One

Do you ever venture out on a photo expedition, only to have it turn out far better than you anticipated? That happened to me yesterday after work! I’d heard about the Tall Ships that had sailed into Los Angeles Harbor this past Wednesday, escorted by a giant rubber duck created by Dutch artist, Florentijn Hofman. A few […]

Shipping Out

Cargo shipping out to sea… and I wonder what’s in those containers, and where they’ll end up. Some years ago, my family and I packed up all our household belongings into a container just like one of these, and watched the truck pick it up and drive away. We hoped that six weeks later our […]

Mr Patriotic

I spotted this dapper gentleman riding along past Ports O’Call Village in San Pedro. Actually, it would have been impossible to miss him. Notice the loudspeaker in the box behind his seat. Those speakers were blasting patriotic music so loud I’m sure he was heard miles away! By the time I caught up with him […]

Korean Friendship Bell

A drive along the coast, all the way from Newport Beach to Marina del Rey awhile back, led me to the Korean Friendship Bell. If you haven’t driven the Palos Verdes Peninsula or through the harbor area at Long Beach over to San Pedro, you’ve missed a fascinating area. While the Queen Mary may be […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
