‎Offended by my foot, most likely. 


The road to the beach

‎From Porter. #UCSC. 


Kresge Construction

‎I kept the yellow tape and blown stucco out of the shot. 


Kresge Laundry

‎Coolest looking laundry room ever. #UCSC


Absurdist Kresge

‎The college suddenly took on a surreal, absurd look at 2 in the AM. #UCSC



‎Roving fields of the stuff. The killer likes to jump in there and drop doodles. I'm a good dog-owner, but I don't do well with securing dog droppings in an area 6 inches deep with unsure footing. 

Not so much the cars...

‎But the bay and the horizon behind them. 


Iceplant, Road, Ocean

‎I don't care how exhausted I am when I walk this stretch. 


West Cliff cliff

‎There is a manmade embankment to the right of this pic. I saw a sheet hung across a portion of the top.  I suppose if I was homeless, this would become my habitat too. 


West Cliff pt.1

‎With the new school year in place, I have to be in this neighborhood 3x a week. So me and the killer will put up some pix. The place is beautiful.

You breakfast

‎Me champion.

Beautiful Patio

‎Lost evening. Drinking champ and cussing out the wasps with my bestie.

At the bar

‎Don't know when I was last at a bar. That makes this a moment. 
Hanging with the last vestiges of the St. Paul Youth Group.


Nothing special here

‎Except that it was pitch black, and I was wheedling around the West Remote Parking Lot at 2am. I troubleshoot my werewolf story when I take these walks. In some deep, perverted way, I am courting darkness. I am asking for a jumpscare by being out here like this. But if I survive the walk, there are usually 3-5 decent ideas that come from such a trek. Plus, I'm doing my job. #UCSC 


There is a big machine

‎After the Bollards. #C8 #UCSC 


An attempt

‎At the College 8 duskclouds. I know what I saw, and this is a weak interpretation. #UCSC 


Oakes looks like

‎The damn Ewok Village. #UCSC. 


That corner

‎I swerve around that corner and take the opposite lane around the guard shack about 2x a week. Oncoming traffic can make the maneuver sketch. #UCSC 


West Remote Parking Lot

‎And a Magpie. #UCSC 


Dusk on the knoll

‎Hanging with a Magpie. #UCSC


Your Wednesday is my Friday.

‎Time to fuck around online with a glass of wine.

Tommy Talker

This guy has been steady decomposing on me since the 2nd. grade.  My kids hate him.

Last Heavy Work Pic Dump. #UCSC

 The C8 Sunflowers.  I have probably taken too many pics of them, but I usually send a few back to S. because she appreciates them so.

 The C8 Garden bench.
Down to Oakes.
 C and D dorm.
The Knoll.  Its dead up here, and that's how I like it.
The clouds off the bay.

Biko in weeds.

 Oakes shots.

 Back up to College 8.

What I like about this set is that it captures one round through the colleges.  The sun is going down and you can see it as the pics dim.

More Work Pics. #UCSC

 The construction by Apartment 2 in C8.
 The Dining Hall during the day.
A different way to go down the center gutter.
 Tennis courts looking up to the Squiggle of #Porter.
 FSH stairs looking confusing.
FSH stairs or a ramp.
FSH bridge.
 The backside of the Dining Hall.
 C8 Garden bench.
 These dudes are HUGE.
 Emergency road.
 The road to Oakes.
Knoll Ridge.
 Clouds are rolling in off the ocean.

 Up at C8 from the Knoll.
Knollview again.

 Oakes stairs.

From Oakes by the bus stop.  The backlight accentuates the horizon.
 Oakes Learning Center.

 Stairs to the Oakes bridge.

 Looking back at Wiesel
Oakes Bridge.
 I tried to illuminate this tree with a flash.  The Milk laundry room and the walkway all looked like a great angle with the naked eye. I couldn't land it with the camera though.
 Back door to the Oakes cafe.
 View off of the Learning Center landing.
 Inside the LC.  The pic didn't become what I wanted it to.  However, it was a cool moment.

 Oakes classrooms.
 C8 Apt. 1
 The road down.

 Now I'm getting into those misty pics that I always want.  You can see the mist swirl under the lights.  You can blow on it and watch it twist.  I have caught it when it actually rains, but not at this stage.  It does make for some interesting ambiance though

Seriously.  I have to do a round at 2AM.  I am in the middle of writing a story about a werewolf, and all I want to do is see this misty light.  Its dark, I'm alone and its awesome.
