Non Sequitur

As foreboding as this place looks, I swear I heard this when I last drove by.

(I love this town.)

That Tudor style reminds me of the steak restaurant where a group of used to sing jazz in the bar years ago. Since this has a window unit in that one window, it makes it look like apartments, converted in years past.

I like it when you include the words painted in the road. STOP makes me stop and linger a moment and think about what the image means to me.

This One goes out to You, Mom

Very inviting shot. Looks like a fun place to live. The Do Not Enter sign is strange there. I like that little street. Reminds me of some of the canyons in the Hollywood Hills.

I was intrigued by this house the first time I saw it. The cement and wood beam construction reminds me of French Normandy, or somewhere like that. I wonder if it used to part of one of the large estates behind it on Oaklawn. Staff quarters perhaps?

I know where this is! Earl's right, I love that little street with the old funky houses. I'm sure all the residents are artists -- or at least I'd like to think so.

I like this street. It always feels kind if secretive.

The minister of a friend of mine used to live right across from that house, or maybe even in that house. His kids used to sell figs (I think it was figs) that grew on their property on the corner there.

What a rockin' house! It is fun to see a stately house like this party to Madonna.
