After 40 million years, a pelican is basically a dog with wings.


Yesterday, I wished I had a pocketful of fish.


Hi guys!

How've you been? Good? Good!



I won't be around much online for the next few days.
Today and tomorrow I'm doing photos with Magic Christian now that the whole band is together. Friday night is their show at the Great American Music Hall, so I hope some of you can make it. (Tix are still available.)

But in the meantime, I wanted to share something cool that happened yesterday.


I met this little fellow.


He was hanging out on one of the piers over at Crissy Field, and a few people were giving him little tiny fish that they had caught.


He/she (how does one tell) was obviously not shy. I got quite close to take these shots.
It's so exciting to see a non-human little person up close (this fella did have a cute personality so to me he was definitely a person.)


Just another San Franciscan enjoying the fine day and the company of others.

You can see more pics of my little buddy here.

And you can learn more about pelicans here. After I took these photos, I was so fascinated by what I had captured that I wanted to learn more.

Another fabulous post by a fabulous lady- have a great weekend and let me know when we can have that long delayed, low carb lunch. I'm in school on Wednesday (got in one class anyway) but I'm free, cheap and easy (but only for you!)

That little guy's so cute, "I want to hug him and squeeze him and call him George"!

Communing with nature in visits with little guys is so special. I am happy you had this brief interlude.

Oh, what a wonderful adventure. Wish I had been there, too.
