The One about LACMA

In 1920, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) opened. Located on Wilshire Blvd. in the Miracle Mile area in Los Angeles, right next to La Brea Tar Pits, LACMA is the largest art museum in the western United States and has over 150,000 works that go as far back as ancient times to the present. I have been to this museum several times and I can tell you […]

The One about Fresh Bay Cafe in San Francisco, California

San Francisco is a city with so much going on, day or night.  Restaurants all over the city which serves up a great diverse styles of cuisine.

The One about Fort Mason Center Farmers Market in San Francisco Part 2

Back in April, I wrote about the Fort Mason Center Farmers’ Market. But to be truthful, I was not thrilled that I didn’t take many photos.  And for me, I don’t like to have things incomplete and try to revisit to give readers of my blog a better look at the booths, what is being served and just an overall feel of the event through photography. Earlier today, I had […]

The One about the Fresno Obon Festival 2016

On Saturday night, I attended the Fresno Obon Festival 2016 in Fresno, California. It was an interesting drive to Fresno, as traffic was at a standstill as police and highway patrol were everywhere monitoring the large crowds of anti-police brutality rallies where people were nearly spilling out towards the freeway and police trying to make sure they don’t hurt themselves. But I made it just in time and I enjoyed […]
