Long before Moni and I took to the road to spend this last July in New Mexico, I spent a couple months with her and her family down in San Dimas, California.
I’m usually a little lost in big cities. Vegas would be an exception, because it was once home, but usually cities make me a little uncomfortable. You see more people in 5 minutes down there in L.A. than you will up here in months on the North Slope (and that’s just on a quick trip to Target). I find it all just a little bit disconcerting.
Still, the big cities do have their strong points…
Oh yes, they do!

Possibly my favorite
Not just a door, this is a porthole
Cuteness fenced in
Wolves of Los Angeles
Gotta have skulls!
Creepy green Victorians (they hang out near the nice grandma, not sure why)
Stop staring at me!!!
Sexy & Violency
Okay, this is just plain cool
You can see right though her!

Lovely in blue
Close-p of a large and very busy mural. (The whole thing was cool. I just figured I’d better pick.)
