November 28, 2012












We saw this computer on the bus going to SF.  It shows a Banksy monkey with a famous corporate logo.   We got permission to take this photo, which we might use on the column to be posted Friday morning.  We’ll post it here just in case we don’t use it with the column which will be posted on Smirking Chimp, Bartcop, and Op Ed News.

Saturday at Union Square.












Tight crop is a bit “grainy.”





Space shutte-spotting

September 24, 2012












Seeing the Space shuttle do a flyby over Berkeley CA caused a columnist to have the nihilist’s version of the St. Paul’s moment.  Read all about it later today in the column that will be posted on Op Ed News, Smirking Chimp, and Bartcop.

In the “on deck circle”

We might use this photo for our next column, so we will post it now just in case.












How many right hand drive Deuces have you seen?












This place in  Kalgoorlie reminded us of a place in Santa Monica.




















More evidence that we are getting close to getting photos of a real China Clipper.  There’s gotta be one around SF somewhere because we keep finding tracks.












Wanna race all the way . . . to dead-man’s curve?


Kink in SF?

September 4, 2012












We will post this horizontal crop of a shot taken Sunday at Union Square in San Francisco because we intend to use it with our next column which will be posted at Smirking Chimp, Op Ed News, and the blog section of Bartcop.
We may try to also run a photo of a B-17 G is we can figure out the html numbers needed.

We may use the vertical crop (see below) on Op Ed.
