Road Trip

Alice and I just finished a two week road trip. Our first stop was Manzanar
Japanese internment camp in the Owens Valley. Origami Cranes in the visitors center. 
It was cold and very windy. Not many visitors chose to explore the outside
areas. Manzanar is a powerful reminder of a shameful period in US history.

Rio Del Mar Memorial

This memorial on Aptos Creek caught my eye. I wonder about the pieces 
of fruit? What do they represent? What do they mean?

Color Film

This roll of  Kodak Porta 160 was in one of my cameras for two years (or so).
I finished the roll a couple of weeks ago.
I had no idea what I had photographed.
Coincindentlly, 34 of the 36 photos had a flower theme.
Pretty wild!

Foggy and Cold

The chill, fog and lack of waves did not deter these two surf dogs.

In the off season the fishing boats get patched and painted.
