Thanks, db8, for the close-up. What a fantastic stone. His picture and everything. Great find and presentation.

By the way, your photo below that of the San Juan Bautista Cemetery is glorious.

Many years ago when I was a young man and came to California from Wisconsin, I had built up in my mind a picture of this verdant garden state, a Wizard of Oz level of green; so you can imagine my disappointment when I arrived to see the hills all brown like that. Since then, of course, even though I know the grass is not "native," it's the iconic vision of the state I came to know and love.

And if it were me, I'd go up and shoot pictures of every single one of those wooden crosses and markers. They won't last forever and they're such elemental folk art.

Thanks again for the fine stuff!
