Before I move on with the next batch of the Bay Area photos, I nearly forgot that I set these photos aside for a post. Just some stuff close to home.
From Summerland — Sandpiper Liquors:
Next to the liquor store is this curious former phone booth with beach rocks. Beach shrine? Don’t know…
Next to the baseball stadium at UC Santa Barbara — about five feet in diameter:
From Paso Robles:
From California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks — barrel vaults galore:
From a little L.A. trip — a a tiki peaked office and striking paint job:
The West Hollywood replica diver (built before the one at MONA in Glendale) sign has returned! The story of these divers at my website about halfway down this page:
This “Hotel Californian” sign has also miraculously been restored and reinstalled. Here’s my photo from 2008 where it sat for many years:
and from a couple weeks ago:
A couple of signs from Buellton:
And, lastly, from Paso Robles:
Okay — back to cropping & prep-ing the Bay Area North stuff. Stay tuned.
