LA, CA Olio, 2017

If you take a lot of photos, there are always some that are hard to put into coherent groupings. For that reason, the ‘pile from time to time produces an olio. An olio is a mixture of various things, a potpourri, a miscellaney, a mishmash, a salmagundi, or perhap, in my case, a “hodge”-podge.

Here is a Californiacian stew for you…from architectural details to fruit to someone about to kiss a frog to a license plate holder.

Tile “mandala”, Manhattan Beach, CA

P1210680

Odd name for a business. Terrible sign “design”.

P1210705

Flowers love the Mediterranean climate. These are gazanias. Gazania! What a handle. Gazania is the flower whose name wants you to reply with “Gesundheit!”

Painting on the wall of an elementary school.

P1210750 (1)

It’s frog-kissing time in Polliwog Park. 

This facade has a certain “Je ne sais quoi”, doesn’t it?

P1220096

Wouldn’t you love it if your town had a rocket like this somewhere?

P1220233

Found in the wash line of a Manhattan Beach wave. 

P1220395

No rocket? Then how about a “paper” airplane?

P1210935

P1220400

Was this street plug chosen by the same person who chose the color of those trash receptacles you just saw in the facade photo? 

P1220575

License plate holder. 

Strange fruit. The grandsons called it a “butt-lemon”.
