El Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant Mural

El Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant, corner of Harvie and W. Cary Street, The Fan.

This funky old block has been erased (which I’m not sure is a good thing). My fond memory was the   Enchiladas Verdes  that I can almost make but still miss and enjoyed the family that ran this place. The sauce was the secret. They weren’t too happy about leaving from what I remember?

Exposition Universell de 1889

This is a O3 edit of one of many photographs of the eiffel tower in the public domain that can be gotten at the Library of Congress archive.

“Since the mid-19th century, Universal Expositions were held in Paris every eleven years. In 1889, the event coincided with the centennial of the French Revolution. The commissioners rejected plans for a 300-meter-tall guillotine, selecting Gustave Eiffel’s tower instead. They gathered a stunning array of exhibits and produced one of the most financially successful universal expositions ever.”

Still Life (redux)

I was asked to photograph a 18th century cannonball this week and had been meaning to get a picture of this shoe plant for years, may have to do one of these with some old sneakers.

I’ve always loved JESUS HELGUERA’s paintings and wish there was a decent web site of large images of his work.
