Curve in the road on Mulholland Highway.

Are you looking at me?

I love how, when the wild parrots see you looking, they give a little head twilt (yes, twilt) and look right back. (Also, those cherry-colored feathers.)

Throwback Thursday: A post-storm Thanksgiving sunrise in 2008

Colors of the season

Got to the Santa Monica farmer's market right as it opened this morning. The Wednesday before Thanksgiving the place always has a different vibe, a buzzy kind of revel.

Didn't find my favorite apple vendor (short, hot season) but everyone else had beautiful stuff.

Still quiet before 8 am.

Everything so pretty:


And abundant.


It's almost citrus season:

I love that grapes and buddha's hand are part of LA's Thanksgiving landscape:

If it weren't for these stacks of fennel and green onions and leeks, all of today's photos would be yellow and orange.

And at Harry's Berries:

PCH to the north of us

When the drive includes this stretch of Pacific Coast Highway, emphasis on 'coast', even the dreaded Home Deport shopping experience becomes bearable.

Hang time

beating the heat

Someone brought a hammock to the park. The whole time we were there -- about an hour -- nobody moved. Nice.

Stuff we saw this morning

Old faithful

The temperature here crept up all night and this morning it's as though summer never left. Meanwhile the news from, well, just about anywhere right now is less than good so let's look at the view that (imho) never fails to soothe or, at the very least, smooth the rough edges.
