The Sycamore Inn, providing food and drink to travelers on old Route 66, since before there was a Route 66. This Rancho Cucamonga, California landmark first opened in 1848. On the menu for Thanksgiving 2012: A selection of 29 wines by the glass, a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings, or filet mignon, prime rib or salmon. Served in the main dining room at tables with white tablecloths and ancient wing backed chairs on casters, squint your eye and you might see an old sour dough miner celebrating a gold strike.

This is a section of the wall depicted in my last post. I found the color and textures of the brick and mortar interesting, and the remnants of the painted advertising information.

Another salvage jet engine waiting on the tarmac at Planes of Fame Air Museum, Chino, California for another chance to fly. I am fascinated by the mechanical contrivances that man can devise from inert matter that then have the ability to move matter through time and space.

This scene is becoming part of our Wednesday ritual. A double bacon cheeseburger and chocolate Coke for me; a bacon cheeseburger and a Coke or shake for Judy at our usual table inside Johnny Rocket’s. When we are really energetic we then walk over to the adjacent Wednesday farmers market in The Shoppes in Chino Hills, California where we might score some fresh produce, or a container of goodies from the baklava man.
I used the Glamour Glow and Tonal Contrast filters in Color Efex Pro to tweak this image, which as usual was a hand-held three frames bracketed.
One of the photographic exercises I task myself with from time to time is to find objects in my own backyard to make images from. This is the roofline of my next door neighbor’s house, as seen from my backyard. I like the diagonal lines created by the vents, the wood trim and the roof tiles, as well as the recurring pattern of the tiles, and how it all plays against the deep, blue sky.
A doorway leading to 165, 167 and 169 North Glendora Avenue, Glendora, California. What worlds lie behind this doorway? You will have to pass through the portal to find out.
Is it really Doctor Who’s time traveling machine or just a classic British telephone box found at a British themed mini-mall in Pasadena, California?
