Beautiful Day for Fish

He looks very content with where he is in life right now; it’s wonderful to see that. I also love that every thing seems to be one shade of blue or another… his shirt, pants, the water, his hat, the sky.

Ladies’ Man

I found this treasure walking in the Potrero area of San Francisco. It was at the corner of Harrison and 24th.  My friends and I find it totally charming and hilarious. We’re laying bets on the era it’s from.

WANTED!

Found at the Lavaca St. Bar in downtown Austin near midnight on July 4th, 2009. The bar has a photo booth where patrons can get in and take silly photos, this was sitting on a table next to the photo booth.

Chinese Ballet

I found this on the sidewalk outside of Bazini’s.
