This Is The End

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's "This Is The End" is 20 minutes too long but has some very funny (gross) scenes and provides the strange pleasure of watching part of the current generation of young actors making fun of their public personas. We saw the film the day after it opened, at a 4:30 PM showing and every seat was sold out. I'm not surprised. The film has lots of desperate, low tech, end- of-the-world energy which makes it fine summer fare. I won't list the large cast or detail the shameless high jinks but will merely recommend it as totally suitable vacation entertainment.

Boom Town

In my post intitled "Spring Light" I had this photo of the San Francisco skyline which was shot on May 9.

On June 4 I took a photo of the same area of the skyline at around the same time of day.

You can see that during the ensuing month a new construction crane was added to the scene. San Francisco can't get away from its roots as a boom (and bust) town.

Turneresque Sunset

Okay, there aren't any contrails in J.M.W. Turner's paintings but there are some very dramatic skies. I shot this sky on 5/20/13. Please click. Really.


Yet more.
