    If I remember correctly, there is a wonderful Peruvian restaurant right around there.

      I remember filing a story from right in front of there back in the day, about a shooting I think. I kind of like the post-apocalyptic-meets-suburban feel of the place.

    Nice pix, C.

    Sideways snow here today, no blue skies.

    Love that roofline on the taco shop. It’s so cute, I just want to put my arms around the whole thing and hug it.

    Ever so glad to be in my groovy little corner of Portland whenever you head out for shootin’. Thanks, Iggy.

    (also, I have a sofa with your name on it, also.)

    One of my favorite artists, Robert Bechtle, celebrated that aspect of California.

    Sigh-inducing & desktop-worthy, as your snaps usually are. Thank you.

    Vance’s Pressure Fried Chicken

    Did you notice Vance’s? John G. and I used to go there all the time. Great food, great dyed black hair chubby waitress named like Merle or something. Those photos make me all sentimental for my mispent youth spent driving around Orange County on quixotic trips…

    You can come to Reno too, you know. It’ll will remind you of the Costa Mesa of our youth PLUS snow in the winter. I’ll even make my oldest kid give up his bedroom for you! :)

    Those are wonderfully depressing pictures! Makes Vernon look like a happy place.
