Island Cow et al

A few selected photos from Sanibel Island.

This is a mural inside a shop...
I don't remember which one.

A light fixture in the Island Cow restaurant.


A quiet garden on the periphery of a shopping center.

Sanibel Island.
Highly recommended.

Photos taken March 2016.

Magnificent Mural

This creative mural takes up a wall at the western entrance
to Manchester Mall
in Fresno, CA.

I find it playful, intricate, and enigmatic;
i.e., it manages to be simulaneously
bold and subtle.

Title: "Cultivating Civilization"
Artist: Ramiro Martinez

The artist describes his work HERE.

Taken 15 September 2017.

Joe's Steak House

Located in downtown Fresno,
Joe's Steakhouse & Grill
is a dandy spot for a delicious lunch
or a fabulous dinner
(probably breakfast, too).

Once you have found a parking spot
(there is a large parking garage right next door)
you can park yourself in this clever bench
until your hunger drives you inside!

The sight and sound
of this fountain will soothe you,
but I do not recommend drinking from it.

Just sayin'.

These photos were taken in August 2017.

Beaks and Teeth

We spent some time at the
while were on Sanibel Island.

Lots and lots of interesting birds.

And a distant (thank you) glimpse

at this guy.

Uh, no. We did not go swimming.

Hibiscus Plus

I have come to the conclusion that hibiscus is my favorite flower.

I have a hard time not snapping pictures of them
wherever I find them.

These were on the edges of a parking lot
on Sanibel Island, Florida.

Taken in March 2017.

This bicycle seat in the same location
was equally irresistible.
