Palatial Gate in Palos Verdes Estates

Near the top of the hill
 I am amazed how such intiricate work can be created from wrought iron. From a quick Google search, I found out that a lot of ornamental gates are made from aluminium too.

Passers-by with Tom Tower - Oxford, UK

After Evensong at Christ Church Cathedral (18 October 2010)
Thought I'd share a few more photos from last October's trip to UK. Here I was aiming for the nicely framed evening shot of Tom Tower, and got a red shoe/diamond jester sock as a special bonus.

More Poppies Please - Lancaster, Antelope Valley, LA County

We've had a cold and rainy winter, and the California Poppy Reserve has only splashes of orange, since poppies need more warmth to bloom. Must come back in a week or two.
