Whenever I work in Simi Valley in Southern California I make at least one trip to this tiny hamburger landmark called The Munch Box located in the city of Chatsworth on Devonshire St. and just past Topanga Canyon and the Chatsworth Metro station, it’s in a small shopping center that is right next to the Chatsworth Post Office.
My work travels have taken me to Austin Texas several times over the past couple of decades and every time I’ve gone there I’ve enjoyed the town immensely. From the great food (especially the BBQ), to the 6th Street bar, art and music scene to the bats under the 6th Street bridge and the trails around it – Austin is a great place to visit and explore.
The Texas State Capitol in Austin is a beautiful piece of architecture that took 6 years to build and was completed in 1888. The Capitol is the largest in gross square footage of all state capitols and is the second largest Capital in the entire nation; second only to the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C.
Photography is my art.
I love taking photos and trying to compose a nice scene to make a subject look interesting.
Most of my photography is of buildings and places but I like to take pictures of almost anything that I think really captures the look and feel of a person, place or thing.
While working in Mexico City Mexico I had an extra day in town and since it was my first time ever to Mexico I was compelled to do some exploring and had heard from a friend about some nearby ancient pyramids from a civilization that pre-dated the Aztecs by over 500 years.
Grover’s Bar and Grill is a place known by locals for their very large outstanding tasty burgers, where you write your name on a chalkboard, grab a beer and stand by the bar to wait for your name to be called for a seat. It’s a very popular place so expect a short wait, but believe me, it’s worth the wait.
The building and location is also famously known (and named) for being former Grover Cleveland’s hunting lodge in the late 1800’s in upstate New York. Cleveland was a politician and lawyer who served as the 22nd and 24th president of the United States.
