Another walk-around - My neighborhood
Lens: 18-55 WR Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Long Beach CA ISO: 100 
Posted By: SpecialK, 11-30-2013, 07:14 PM

Went out again with just the 18-55 WR, in my immediate neighborhood.

This leaf somehow got trapped in my screen door some time ago, and I thought it was kind of nice. I'll probably pull it out, soon.


I used to park on the street, and if I took a day off, I'd normally forget to move my car for the street cleaner and get a ticket. I now park in a designated spot without issue.


There's a sidewalk in there somewhere.


Sometimes the birds are noisy. They often left droppings on my car until I had the opportunity to change to a parking spot without the TV cable over it.


Long Beach airport is nearby and the private plane approach is pretty close.


A professional building.


The coin-op laundry.


Until a few months ago, this was a martial arts school.



The Post Office. I pay all but 2 bills online.


Hardware.


Mural representing the oil business, and maybe the aerospace business (McDonnell-Douglas, Grumman and Boeing...)


Looks like some barrel distortion...


Used book-store. I got a couple good deals.


Could use some water?


Gym sign. Cirivello's is the sports-bar for football, loud music, and loud drunks...


Several sculptures are around the area.


Panvimarn is the local restaurant which I have not quite decided to try, though I will someday.


I've been here.


The holiday season has arrived.


Commercial establishments.


The real estate building, reflecting another pale building.


The park across the street has this pond with a rock pile in the middle that has turtles and a bird or two on it from time to time.


The yum-yum tree.


The alley.

Thanks for the walk around your 'hood. I really enjoyed it. Sadly, I suspect the plant that could use some water has already seen it's best before date.

Thank you for the walk around. I'm using the kit lens these days--travelling in the Middle East--and keep thinking how great a lens this little guy is. Light, small, very sharp at f8-11. Not a low light lens, but excellent for walk arounds.

As is the Monty Python skit "is no more", "has ceased to be", "bereft of life, it rests in peace"? I think you are right.

I have a Sigma 17-70 I bought used for walking around, but this lens is not so bad :-)

Nice display of the homestead.
It has a bit of character as it is not buried in rows and rows of residential blocks.
