In Front of the Courthouse, Downtown San Jose, CA

Here are the palm trees lining the front of the Lightrail stop in front of the courthouse, which happens to be a two minute walk from my house.

These palm trees aren't in the best of shape, but I think people can donate to save them. There were little plaques on each tree, I am assuming a donor.

If I remember correctly, although we have a lot of palm trees here and in places like Los Angeles, they are not native to California. They need extra care. I watched on the Discovery Channel, a program that mentioned that if humans were to vanish from the earth, these trees would eventually die out here in CA, as there would be no one to care for them.

Mendocino, June 2010

Hello All,

Above is a shot of what looks like a pond (but really part of a river) at Van Dam State Park under a minibridge on Highway 1.  In fact, This is the same place of my last posting below. It's just that the picture I shot below was taken during the middle of Fall and this one was taken the week before Summer. A lot of green. There is the ocean to the left (not in the picture) and then there is a stream leading to this river which runs from this beach all the way to approximately Cloverdale if I am not mistaken.

When I started this blog, I really thought that I would mainly post pictures from the city in which I live, San Jose. Instead, I've been posting pictures mainly from San Francisco and Mendocino as well as other cities here in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I apologize to those of you who subscribed to see San Jose. Unfortunately, I can't say that I will stop anytime soon and stick to San Jose photos. It's just that I post pictures that move me, and lately it's been out of San Jose.

However, I can say that I took a lot of pictures of my neighborhood area yesterday, so I will post those soon.

This shot was taken around Thanksgiving last year. It's a small bridge on Highway 1 in Little River, CA on my way to visit my grandparents in Mendocino.
