It all falls down


Santa Rosa’s got three cemeteries –  Evergreen Cemetery, out on the north side of town; San Jose Cemetery, down a narrow road on the east part of town; and the very old Saint Rose of Lima cemetery.

That’s where what’s left of a chapel stands guard over graves and weeds as the plaster falls away from the stone walls bit by bit.

The things up there, #2


Looking up, again. Now there are those two light fixtures, hovering above an abandoned business and its vacant parking lot.

The things up there, #1


When I remember to look up, there’s a reward. There’s a twisted metal sign with an electrical wire hanging from it. There’s a water-stained wood roof that’s also got a wad of wires hanging over the edge. There’s clouds that look like cotton that’s been pulled apart.

I’ve got to remember to look up.

That’s quite a bit of red


If you peek in the window of this now-defunct restaurant, this is what you will see. There’s quite a bit of red trim, and a chair. A chair! And, note that this particular chair is not just sitting around; rather, it is hard at work making sure that door stays open.

A wavy line


Just yesterday, I said the photo had “just about everything.”

But it actually didn’t. It did not have a single wavy line.

Today I am fixing my error, featuring this wavy-roofed place that is just across the street from yesterday’s photo. At least “everything” is close together….
