This is an picture of a picture of the Gabor sisters--some really campy Gaborabilia . Complements of the Palm Springs Historical Society. Magda lived in Palm Springs and died in the 1990s. Eva died in the 1990s too. She was the one on Green Acres. Zsa Zsa is still alive. I believe she's 93. She's the great aunt of Paris Hilton.
If anyone can fill in the blanks about these women, please do.

Doesn't this shot make you want to go on the rides? If you go to the fair, you'll find that all of the people who work there are really nice. That makes for a pleasant experience.

Is this an old picture? Nope, it's a picture of a Cadillac station wagon that was taken yesterday in Palm Springs.
The picture was taken with an iPhone. It was tweaked using the magazine option in the Camera Bag app.

Here in Palm Springs we have the one of the biggest collections of modern architecture in the world. Take the building in this shot. Look at the curves and lines; the concrete, the glass. It's all modern this week as Modernism Week celebrates 5 years of showing the planet how the future looked in the past.

Now that the rains have gone, everyone's ready for President's Day weekend, which will flood Palm Springs with hot guys, but not as many hot guys that will be here for the White Party, which is in April.
Palm Springs has a diverse population. Nearly 40 percent of the people that live here are gay.
I've never marketed my books to hot guys, but now is as good a time as any.
Come on guys pull out your cameras to not only photograph each other, but also to capture the cool desert scenery around here. Learn how to make those photographs winners with 101 Quick and Easy Secrets to Create Winning Photographs, a book written by a Palm Springs photographer.

Check out the fancy addition to the street sign in the Mesa neighborhood of Palm Springs. Each street sign in the neighborhood has a an added sign that says "The Mesa."
Just in case if you didn't know where The Mesa neighborhood was, it's around South Palm Canyon in the southern edge of the city.
You just gotta wonder how much the extra signs cost and who paid for 'em.
By the way, Mary Tyler Moore once lived there.

This is a busy day at the Palm Springs recycling center. This is the place for the homeless to hangout. If they're not here, they're nearby. The recycling center is behind the Ralph's on Highway 111.
I got "caught" taking this picture by a homeless guy. He looked too messed up to do anything, but if they're were fewer people around, who knows what he could have done.
At any rate, this is a busy place. There's lots of music usually blaring from a radio and numerous shopping carts dot the landscape.

When I was busy photographing events in Palm Springs, I came across the lightbox montage of Elizabeth Taylor in a client's home.
First thing that comes to mind when thinking of Taylor is finding a quote by her.
Here it is:
Big girls need diamonds.
Elizabeth Taylor used to live in a Palm Springs "A" frame house in Old Las Palmas.
