It is my sons house in Corona, CA, and
also the house where I live when in I am in California.
The yellow car is a 1966 Chevy El Camino owned by my next door neighbor. On the classic market it is worth around $15K.
Joyce and I were slumming in the Loop last summer. One of many interesting photos I took of downtown Chicago.
The flower is an Epithelium. It is a member of the cactus family. This color variety blossoms from red, magenta thru crimson as you can see in the photo. I also have a variety that blossoms from off white, pink and peach. They only blossom once a year in May. However I have had some confused flowers that actually blossomed in November. This is a rare but beautiful and welcome occurrence.
The silhouette is a Anna's Hummingbird about to land on "its own" feeder for a feast. Very territorial, he gets upset when a fellow hummer tries to sneak a bite.
Here is a photo of the house I lived in when I went to LT. It was totally destroyed in the year 2000 to build a new house lacking in character and nostalgic charm
"Skimming over Florida wetlands in this vintage airboat was
one hell of a ride".
"Paul and Joyce do their rendition of "I'm Mr. Blue" on the ships stage during last years Bahamas cruise".
This photo was shot with a real 35mm camera around 1970 along
California Hwy. 395 on the way to Hot Creek, a natural hot springs recreational
area north of Bishop, CA".
