  18. Nice set. I particularly like the VW shot. Maybe a little serendipity, having an old hippy car of just the right color putter through your landscape?

    • Hi Dave, Thank you! I couldn’t believe my luck when she drove up in that great car with its color and surfboard. Funny, someone in SF recognized it and I tried to get in touch with the owner to send the shot to her, but had no response. Too bad. Glad you enjoyed this series. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Lynn. Those shots are especially fond photographic memories. I’m sure you know the feeling when something just “clicks”… πŸ™‚ Hope you’re doing well.

      • Sometimes the good memory shots aren’t up to “I’ll post that” standards so it’s nice when everything converges. We’re fine…the county has been in Phase 2 for only a few days…great to see people sitting at tables inside a coffee shop today. I felt like it was halfway to normal. πŸ™‚
