the morning yucca

I took some time the other Saturday morning to explore my own town; it paid off handsomely because not only did I discover an excellent coffee place, but there were some exuberant yucca flowers out in front.

And this reminds me that when I was a kid, I’d eat these flowers, which could surely explain some things.

where you’ll find quality

I am pretty sure that most of my reader(s) are not aware that they could be purchasing their finer menswear in New Mexico. This inventory at this place runs the gamut from golf clothes to summer suits. And don’t forget that they offer service every day.

And here is an example of the kind of jewelry that I would never, for even the tiniest slice of a second, think about wearing.

And here is also an example of the kind of jewelry that I will definitely photograph.

San Antonio’s famed Riverwalk is below street level, which adds some interest to walking around. If you get really lucky, you can see the street-level entrance to a bar or restaurant and at the same time spot the river-level back stairs where last night’s trash awaits collection.

In this case, I was looking at the back stairs to Dick’s Last Resort while standing next to the street-level doorway; a little bit later that same morning, when I was on the river, a man setting up tables for Dick’s L. R. called my attention to cat that was stalking a couple of ducks*. That was a nice bit of coincidental symmetry.

*The ducks escaped a feline-induced end when the cat ran away. In case you were worried.

alley, with bird

I will always look down an alley. And I will generally photograph it, especially if there happens to be a cooperative bird in the vicinity.
