His day had already begun

At six o’clock in the morning, most of the people at the pier were either photographers or workers getting ready for a busy day at the amusement park rides. Both are represented here. In a way.

All players welcome

There’s a piano at Union Station, with a sign inviting people to step up and play.

This woman had just finished playing, with that little girl next to her the whole time.  The rest of their family was close by, obviously proud of what was going on. And it was a privilege for me to get to share in their afternoon, if only for a single moment.

“The higher the hair, the closer to God.” That’s what we say in Texas.

If it’s as true in California as it is in Texas, then this place was practically like going to church.

Cab ride, in the rain

On the cab ride to the airport the other day, I realized that I’ve had lots of missed opportunities to take photos from back seats of cabs over the years. It just never occurred to me.

Maybe you wish I hadn’t thought about this time either…
