I don't have time to write much about all the good stuff that went on today. I have to either process images or process words, hardly time for both.
I shot many of a new mural on Caesar Chavez St., but I like this one the best. It has Cesar, Che and Emiliano Zapata side by side and is quite well done.
That's my Brompton. I took my car in to have the oil changed this morning. This bike pops in a car easily and is very handy for around town. While I waited for my car, I rode around the Mission and over to Noe Valley, where I had a taco and bought some bird food. It was sunny and warm and I loved being out again.
Later, I also took my car to be smog certified and because I'd been taking old magazines for his waiting room for years, the guy didn't charge me! I'm stunned.
I checked out Chicken John - he was running for mayor last fall, though this says supervisor. The mural/poster takes up one side of a house on Caesar Chavez St. and looks new.
Hercules, covered in dried mud, reappeared this afternoon. I saw mud in his little pond - not there this morning - stopped to look and could hear him rustling around in the plants. I picked him up and he immediately withdrew into his shell, where he remained, still wary after his long winter nap. I weighed and photographed him and then I put him back where I'd picked him up. He weighs the same as when he buried himself last fall. Whew!
Tomorrow I will go buy fresh blueberries for him.
I am so happy.
