Taken with a P&S in a very old movie theater in Encinas, Ca. called the La Paloma. Very interesting place, mostly original inside, a bit spooky when the lights went way down. We saw "Inception", 4 people including us when it started and only my wife and I were left at the end... The camera was rested on the seat back, no flash, on auto, and a very long exposure.
Thanks, I could not believe there was only a few of us watching the movie. The theater was actually quite nice, a bit nostalgic, great sound system and that touch of memories of days past. Lately it seems my shots are more from the Nikon P&S than the dslr..... maybe back to basics is good!!!
Hi folks. Well, I went out for a labor day street crawl on Monday and by that I mean a crawl. It is hard to walk very far and or fast with a knee brace, but I managed...Anyway, I have seen many strange things over the years, but this has to be in the top 5. This was the most bizarre deal. First I was in one of the Ghetto parts of Hollywood. I saw this fellow sitting at the bus stop so I proceeded to cross the street and took this snap. When he saw me take the snap, he got up and started to walk away, so I took another quick one while still walking in the street as he was walking away. Normally I am not a chimper, but this was strange to me as I thought there where two people. When I looked and saw that it was one. What was more creepy, is that it looked just like the fellow with the legs, I had to try and get a third pic. So here I am peg leg and all chasing him to tray and get a close up when he saw me and started to cuss me out in a strange language...I thought he was going to attack me, so I started to get ready, but he backed off and walked away.
I am SO glad I moved out of Calif. in the 60's !! Those are FUNNY!

Visit, enjoy, and invest in our National Parks. It's "America's Best Idea".
You betcha! It is soooo shiny, I can't find an angle without reflections! Glad you like it. :-)
