Coachella Skies


This area of Southern California is consistently one of the windiest. It's called the San Gorgonio Pass, and is the gateway to the Coachella Valley. Look closely and you will see a cluster of wind generators. Beyond the wind turbines and to the right is the Morongo Valley Casino. If you were to turn and look in the opposite direction, you would see wind generators for as far as the eye can see!
Linking with Skywatch Friday. Click on the link to check out great skies from around the world!!

On the Corner of Sunrise and Sunset

I don't know why it didn't occur to me before now to take this sky shot. This street sign is very close to our house, where we've lived for 25 years. Seems like a perfect shot for Skywatch Friday. Some ideas just take time, I guess!

Tableside Service at Morimoto's

While attending a business meeting a couple weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to join a team dinner at "the best restaurant in Philly!" The person who arranged it is local to Philly and evidently eats at Morimoto's all the time. He arranged for a private room and a dedicated server who's a personal friend. Lots of free sample food and off-the-menu stuff. Long story shot, probably the best meal I've ever had! During pre meal appetizers, this young lady prepared a sizzling appetizer (I have no idea what it was) right next to me. I liked the low light from the single tabletop lamp, the look of intense concentration on her face, and the fast movement of her hands as she quickly prepared the dish. This iPhone shot captured the moment well. A wonderful way to remember an incredible meal!
