A pile o' stuff

Here is a good way to show off how much stuff you can buy and throw away, just put it in front of your house. Too bad pick up trucks are so scarce these days. If there were more pick up trucks around, people could haul their stuff away themselves. Oh well.

Geodetic point

If you know where this point is on the cliffs in Palos Verdes, you know where I was.

the view from Palos Verdes

Here is a shot from the cliffs down in Palos Verdes, one of my favorite places. I was there over the weekend taking pictures. I'll put some more up tomorrow.

More to come, later

Tried to upload a couple of pics this morning. I took a little drive Saturday to Palos Verdes, just to look at the scenery. Really pretty down there. Will put pics up tonight after work.

And the other picture...

Here is the other picture of the bathroom sink job. Hope to finish it tomorrow night or Tuesday morning.

What I did this weekend

Well, here is what I worked on most of this weekend, instead of drawing. Its trying to clean out the drain that is the real hard part, since the drain pipe angles to the left in stead of down. And the small auger is having a hard time trying to get through the gunk. So I need to go the hardware store tomorrow morning and get a couple of washers for the drain. Maybe even a new shorter drain pipe and a flexible plastic pipe to connect it to the p-trap. Sheeeesh!!!

Its about time...!!

Well, I finally got out to take more pictures today, and I think this little setup takes the cake. The shoes were a nice touch. While I was taking this picture, a guy walked up to me and said something about the items left by the curb, and who would put this stuff here?
He looked homeless. He wanted me to give him a job I think, like cleaning this stuff up.

Old Philly Photos...

Can't recall if I already posted this one or not, but this might be the Municiple Services Building downtown Philadelphia. I must have taken this from City Hall back in the day.

A mirror

Don't know why there is a mirror set up like this in an alley, strange. Interesting little scene. Who put it there and why? What was the person trying to see?

Keeping your stuff up off the street...

Well, here's a good idea...keep your stuff up till you get ready to take it away. And right next to the trash can, so you remember that its got to go.

television sets

Hey, this is another pair of tv sets I found. Don't know why people throw out televisions two at a time. Guess they blow out at the same time. Well, just leave them at the curb. Someone will pick them up. Wonder if there are any parts inside of them to use to make a SUPER TV that will show old tv shows from signals bounced back from space of "I Love Lucy"?

Entire bed set!

Look at this. An entire bed set, just left at the curb. Use it and throw it away. Somebody will pick it up. Looks good here, doesn't it? A shot of the sun rising behind this would make Ansel Adams jealous.

From the Harbor Freeway...

I took this from the Harbor Freeway driving north this morning on the way to the office
and was surprised it came out at all. The digital camera does pretty good in the car at speed.

Television sets...

So why couldn't these two TV sets just walk themselves to the dump? Could it be that, oh, I don't know, they don't have LEGS??!!! Come on guys!! The city has a place you can take the TVs to get rid of them once they don't work anymore. Look it up in the city directory! Or check the Yellow Pages. You know, the phone book the phone company sends around every year!

Good seat...

Now, here's a good seat to watch the traffic on Normandie Ave., see all the SUV's and mini Hondas speeding down the street at one hundred miles an hour, blasting music nobody can understand....Looks to be a recliner, so sit back and relax as the world speeds by!!

A good chair...

Well, here's a good place for a chair, right next to a tree. Come on, couldn't you find someone with a pick up truck to take this away for you to the dump? Must the city do everything for you?

Mattress on the street...

Here is a mattress on the street, taking a spot usually reserved for a hooldlum thug...
leaning up against a utility pole, just looking for trouble and hanging out. Looks like he has couple of his homies with him. Are they west side side or east side? Typical teenage behaviour. Get a job!!!
