Eastern Spring 2016

On my recent trip to Richmond VA I learned that the color of new leaves is Chartreuse. Like these.

This is a part of Maymont, which was some rich people's estate and is now a very nice park.

I had not known that there was a sub-genre of porn that involved someone having their head squeezed between Griffins' butts. I found sculptural evidence at Maymont.

This is a great wall.

 Turtle island

A mausoleum with a very nice view.

New Art

New murals get painted over old murals, sometimes by the same artist, and exploring new streets and alleys leads to new discoveries. This is on a wall next to a bar owned by

A building of unknown function.

New work on a bar where the murals change a lot.

Danielle O'Malley, a name to conjure with.

I recognize the hand.

A jewel.

He was almost 103. The mural was painted by his grandson.

Unintentional Landscape Art

We had the backyard rebuilt before the rains started. The workers saved the old bricks, cleaned them and laid them back down with new bricks. When the rains started, we found out that the old bricks had moss in their pores and within a day of the first good rain, the moss had sprouted up.

It's wonderful how the moss is only on certain bricks.

Ocean Beach 1/23/16

There was a stiff wind and white caps in the aftermath of some heavy rain.

The lone kitesurfer was having an amazing ride.

The silver light off the water.

This is a reminder that San Francisco is a very multiethnic city.

Cold War Relics

A dear friend found these in South Dakota.

It turned out that Freud was wrong about a lot of things, but not everything. Let's admire a closer shot of the ICBM piercing the Soviet flag.
