Red Robin, Riverbank, CA

Had lunch at a Red Robin
one day last week.
We do not have one
in our hometown,
so it was a real treat.

They have some great artwork on display.
Here are just a few examples:

 US flag made of baseballs!

made of license plates.
(Not really sure why 'ALCOHOL'
is featured.)

Light fixture.
Dozens of bottles suspended from the ceiling,
with halogen lights above to illuminate.

US map; backlit.
I'd have to do some research,
but I think each state shape
is made from a metal sign
that advertises beer 
brewed in the corresponding state.

Clever, colorful art
that reuses 'disposable' objects.

Tragic Fire

On 2 February 2015, my house burned to the ground. 

It is quite a process "starting over."

For the purposes of this blog, the relevant result of the fire is that my entire digital photo collection was destroyed. So, the source material from which I draw for this blog is gone.

I do have hundreds of pictures on my phone - which survived the fire because I had it in my hand calling 911.  But some of those pictures have already been used; and many of them are not actually suitable to this blog; i.e., family photos, event photos, etc.

I will get back to taking pictures for this blog eventually.  My camera was lost in the fire, so I hope to replace it at some point.

Please be patient. In terms of priorities, this blog (and my others, as well) is pretty far down on the list.

Nevertheless, I hope to be back at it as soon as I can.

Stand by!
