Pinks is a well travelled hot dog stand on La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles, CA that's a favorite with nearly everyone even though their product is frequently criticized after the fact of eating it.  It has a certain grease quotient which affects the brain, particularly when drunk.  For my money and my taste, if you really want a good hot dog in Los Angeles, you go to Carney's on Sunset in West Hollywood or on Ventura Boulevard in Studio City.  I went to Pinks to take pictures at night playing with a new camera.  Didn't eat there but I'm very happy with these shots - -  thanks Pinks!

Women's March Against Trump

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 7, 2017, 7:55 AM

These photographs were taken at a women's march in downtown Los Angeles on March 5, 2017 protesting in particular the Trump administration's immigration and deportation policies and recents arrests, as well as promoting women's equality - - considered at risk in the current political climate in the United States.

Trump Star composite v19  by makepictures

By and large, the locals and tourists on Hollywood Boulevard hold Mr. Trump in less than the highest esteem. But once the star was destroyed in the very early morning hours and then immediately that same morning replaced, the Trump supporters, none from Hollywood, came out to "protect" the star which was covered with a sheet of plywood.  After the election results were in, the star remained covered but with a fresh sheet of plywood and got a full circle of protection from plastic "security guards."  A few weeks later, his bright shiny new star was uncovered without ceremony or even much notice.  The image with the protest signs, made around 112 days into the Trump presidency suggests there is more work in store around this star. The teenagers grouped around the star, taken two days after the former FBI Director's explosive testimony, suggests that Trump has managed to compromise any respect for the presidency of the United States with the next set of voters. Subsequently the Purple party seems interested in either helping Trump to become king or in levitating him to another plane so we don't need to deal with it anymore.  But at least one parent still seems interested in introducing her toddler to the president.


And this:…

And this showing the star being destroyed:…
