X’mas lights at Candy Cane Lane

This year X’mas day was fun (sadly the season wasn’t…:( ). We had friends come over for lunch, later in the evening we went out for a drive and took some pictures of the lights at the Candy Cane Lane.

Candy cane lane is an eight block stretch in Woodland Hills where the neighbors put up a plethora of Christmas lights and pay massive electric bills.

Here are some of the pictures. Hope you like them…:)

Bombay Beach

Bombay Beach was born as the Salton Sea became a playground for vacationers in the 40’s and 50’s. This whole are was going to be California’s version of the French Riviera. A number of problems arose: increasing salinity in the Salton Sea, which created major fish and bird die-offs, and a series of floods from tropical storms in the 70’s. The area has never recovered and now lays in basic ruins.

Made up of a square mile grid of paved streets, the majority of the residents live in eclectic mobile homes. There is a small corner market, 2 bars, bait shop, volunteer fire station, an unmarked motel, and the flooded ruins of a once prosperous fishing mecca. Without a gas station, and the nearest one 20 miles away, most people rely on electrical golf carts to get around town.

The number of dead fish on the shore in unbelievable and there is the stench of I think some chemical..its spooky all together.
I didn’t want to post all my pictures here on the blog (it will wear you out..:) ).
Here are some of them.

Life is beautiful..:)

Life is indeed beautiful..taken at Hollywood and Highland, these girls were the busiest during the half hour I was there. I don’t see a reason why not..:-p.
The best thing I like about this picture is the different people expressions I got. There’s the discomfort the guy in the middle has, the guy with the cap is all happy..don’t know why..then there a guy in a passing car, giving the thumbs up and at the same time taking a picture..
Like I said earlier, Hollywood & Highland is a good place to be people watching..njoi.

Life is beautiful..
