I love Ortega Street on sunny days with her empty avenues that just spill out into Ocean Beach.

I took these pictures sometime last year during a spectacular Full Moon to the east that was clearly visible as the sun set to the west. It was a really unique and gorgeous day that I proceeded to completely forget about. Now that I’m in the process of swapping out iMacs I find myself stumbling across all of these forgotten pictures that I never got around to posting.

I really dig this spot. This is my Tower of Power. The Sunset Water Reservoir is easily one of the top 5 locations to watch the sunset in San Francisco. It also has a really unique and priceless view of the western SF skyline, yet most of the time it’s half empty if not completely deserted.

If goldfish ever ruled the earth I would imagine they would live in little suburban units like these two.





“That STILL don’t match!”

So I was making fun of this house a few weeks ago.

The Spirit of Carville still lives on. Ocean Beach, Outer Sunset SF 5

Lord knows why anyone would think it’s a good idea to build a wood shingle kind of room on top of a sickly green colored room and call it a house, but hey. It’s a free country. I had a nice chuckle at my neighbors expense and then went on about my business.

Then while taking a new way home the other day I discovered this guy.

That STILL don’t match!

One house with a wood shingle kind of room built on top of a sickly green colored room and I can chalk that up to the actions of a lone nut.

But TWO houses with a wood shingle kind of room built on top of a sickly green colored room, both just a few blocks away from each other?

Now we’re talking about a conspiracy.

I’m still a big fan of all the skating pictures + videos in The Outer Sunset with those signature loud and tacky colors in the background. This is my home.

Amazing succulent on Ortega Street with junk the length of a telephone pole bursting through the ubiquitous cobweb of overhead electrical lines.

Reaching out for something to hold. Looking for a love where the climate is cold. Smoking guns hot to the touch. Would cool down if we didn’t use them so much. We’re soul alone and soul really matters to me.

OK. Here’s my pitch –

Morgan Freeman is this ninja cyborg from a dystopian future where angry whales rule the world. He had his arm bit off by a dolphin in Vietnam and now he spends his time as a private investigator in Hawaii where he devotes one hour each week to having adventures and helping people with their problems. Ernest Borgnine is this one eyed, salt of the earth, sailor type that’s the Higgins of the team.

Oh! And it’s animated too! But in this retro Heavy Metal meets Yellow Submarine psychedelic style.

There.

Now put that on my car.
