Entrance to Indian Canyons in 2015

This is where I ride my book several times a week. It's called the Indian Canyons.
I like this shot because the road was just paved and the words scream out meaningless if you've never ridden in a car in the US. There are two entrances and one exit. Cool lines, color and curves in this one.

Celebrities and Gloria Greer

Courtesy of Palm Springs Historical Society
Nobody in Palm Springs covered celebrities like Gloria Greer. After all she was one herself. She died last year and we all miss her. She interviewed me for my book "Digital Art Photography for Dummies" in 2005.

Rare Mojave Desert Tortoise Spotted

While jogging today just outside Demuth Park, I ran into this rare desert tortoise. This creature lives to be 50-80 years. Incredible! What a find. It must have weighed at least 10 pounds. Should I have caught it? Who knows if it will survive in the environment around the Water Park and golf courses.

Clouds Threaten, but Give Little Rain

Now, don't those look threatening! Too bad they offer nothing more than a pittance of rain. This is the desert after all.

Graffiti Under Ramon Bridge

Palm Springs Graffiti
Normally you don't see graffiti in Palm Springs; however, under the bridges it's there and rather artful.

Hipster Haven

The King's Highway has got to be the coolest bar/restaurant in town.  Converted from an old Denny's, the place's atmosphere is offbeat, rustic and friendly, a welcoming environment where everyone is made to feel like a local, whether you're from out-of-town or not.

A must-go breakfast of lemon-ricotta pancakes filled and topped with berries and bananas is as comforting to the stomach as the restaurant's interior is heaven-on-earth to any lover of retro.

King's highway is Palm Springs Daily Photo five-star hipster location right in South Palm Springs  next to Koffi at 701 E Palm Canyon Dr, Palm Springs, CA, about 2.3 miles from downtown.

Looking East

It's sunnier longer in the East Valley at dusk in the afternoons all year long than it is in the West Valley (Palm Springs) because of the mountain's shadow.
Here's some food for thought. If you're a visitor to the Coachella Valley, know that the sun stays out longer the further east you go. That's because the huge San Jacinto mountain is west of here, casting a huge shadow to the east over the West Valley (Palm Springs).

What does this mean in terms of the weather in the Coachella Valley? In the winter the sun goes behind the mountain early (about 4 p.m. during the winter solstice), causing Palm Springs to get cooler earlier in the evening then, say, Palm Desert where the sun isn't seen setting until 5 p.m.

In the summer, there is a larger relief from the heat in Palm Springs close to the mountain than there is the further east you go (away from the mountain).  The resorts under the mountain's shadow (close to Palm Canyon) are actually cooler in the afternoon than those that lie to the east.
