Yesterday, I drove all the way from Calico, CA (which is a few miles from Barstow) to Los Osos, CA. I followed Route 66 until I made it to San Bernardino where I got and stayed on the interstate so I could make it to my destination before midnight. This was perfect timing as I was needing a little break from shooting old gas stations, abandoned buildings and neon signs.  Attached are three shots I took yesterday.

It’s my birthday today (the big 4-oh) and I’ll be spending it relaxing and planning the future. I plan to enjoy a bottle of mead (honey wine) that I picked up in Russia a few months back.
