Keeping walls of art in and around Los Angeles free from graffiti is a full time job and you must have the right tools to get the job done. In this case, a power washer to blast away the garbage from this Venice beach scene.
The Dolphin seems pleased with the work so far and I'm sure the artist will be happy. But the street gangs who were trying to mark their territory likely will return - paint cans at the ready - for another shot.

From this angle, it almost looks as if Christopher Chan of Los Angeles Valley College is walking on air ... or shooting pool (really look at it.)
But of course, he's clearing the bar during his pole vault rotation. Chan eventually won the event with a vault of 13' 9 1/2" at a recent meet at Valley.
I took this shot with the intention of rotating it for a conventional view, but why be a slave to convention when this angle makes it a better picture.

I had planned to use a totally different picture for my latest daily entry, but this shot went to the head of the line when I saw Freddie trying to set a bubble blowing record.
Ahhhhhhhh ... Paris in the springtime. I'm sure it's nice, but this is a scene in Glendale, California.
The dancing water display at the Americana at Brand shopping mall is a popular attraction for visitors who are taking a break from spending what's left of their cash at some of the expensive stores on the grounds.
Actually, The Americana - being an outdoor mall - is a nice place to go and relax before pulling off that well thought out bank job to raise more money to spend there.
And on the weekends, a live jazz band plays at night for free. But, ahhhhhhh Glendale just doesn't have the same allure as Paris.

The big consumer electronics chain, Circuit City, is going out of business and the doors will close for good this weekend.
I've joined the vultures in looking for good deals, but there's not much worth buying now ... thus the "up to 80% off" portion of the sign as they try to entice just a few more customers before the padlocks go on the doors.

Don't those reflective tanker trucks make you want to take a picture?
While driving on the 101 heading north, I saw this truck and because of the broken clouds, I knew there was a picture to be made.
I got lucky because I'm the only car on the road near the truck and I was able to get a clean image.
You might not think much of this picture, but there's a truck stop wall in Fresno that's crying out for artwork.
