Exploring California #parteight #PacificCoastHighway

So we’re done, let’s get home.  Okay, it’s not that easy we’re up north and have to travel to the south now.  There’s going to be a few stops, as Pacific Coast Highway is one of the most impressive Landscapes. Also there are birds, and you all do know that I do appreciate Bird pictures. And there are mor birds, wait what? This ain’t birds, these are kite surfers! There’s also a bridge. Yes there is a bridge, it’s not as red as the one in black and white but it’s a bridge and I figured there’s too little pictures of this angle. Living there must be so nice, weird,…

#oneworldtradcenter show me around

#liberty

Not too may words for that pictures, I took them from inside one world trade center and tried to have a good look at the city, though I got told that the look from empire state is a better one, most probably I should have taken a drone and attach a actioncam to it… And again, more or less the same, but still you can see this city is impressive! and there’s so much green, almost like Graz, when you count courtyards in Graz. I think we’ve seen that before right? Maybe we should use it as a postcard and send it to my friend Jürgen? Here’s one I liked….

#NewYork big city life

#drittesreichdafuq

So I met with a friend in New York, like meet half way or something. So we met at Abrahams. He’s way more friendly to visitors than the other guy with the big building, I try not to remember his name and face… And now for the obvious, if you visit a real city like New York you’re going to see plenty of real big buildings! Most of them to big for your lens, whatever lens you’re using, maybe it’d workout with a fisheye… And there’re some buildings you might wonder what they stand for, like the nest one, honestly, when I saw this building I was like Holy what…

#Devils #Punchbowl

#devil's punch bowl

You Remember my last post? When I was driving to the Desert? On my way back home I was like: I haven’t seen to much yet, almost desert only so I stopped at @Devils Punch Bowl. What I recognized first was: You have a marvelous view on the moon there 🙂 There was no lunar eclipse and from what I know you do not need to wear any special glasses to take a look at the moon, while the president doesn’t need some at all even if it’s a eclipse of the sun… I liked that little guide, he was showing me around the trail, very kind, and as you saw…

#Desert #Adelanto

#gotsomenewtires

A few weeks ago I went to Adelanto, there’s the Southern California Logistics Airport a friend of mine who was doing #thespeedproject this year ran past that on his way to Las Vegas, there are several thousand cars parked, new cars. I was curious to see that so I got a car and got there. Unfortunately you cannot get a good view on the cars as the fence is covering them… But I found something else… And this was not the only set of couches in that desert, there were others! Dimitri explained me that most probably people were out there to have a party from the picture I can see…

#SantaMonica #cars #streets #traffic

#trafficlikehell

So you know, it is all about cars, to prove my point here, I gathered some pictures from Traffic, Cars and the streets of Santa Monica/Los Angeles. And Here we go. This picture was taken at the corner Rose Avenue/Main Street. On a normal Saturday afternoon, on the right you can see the tail of a Bird Scooter, they have almost been banned from Santa Monica. I love them, they should help removing some cars, you can grab one of them with an App and start skooting. And yes, they are electrically powered. And of course there are other competitors entering the Market. Another one of those „small“ streets, we…

#SantaMonica #Beach #People #Birds

#SeaGull

I’m starting to get a little bit bored… It feels like I’ve seen almost everything I could reach by bike or Skateboard. I should go on a road trip soon, meanwhile I’ve some pictures of Santa Monica for you. That time I were at the beach and there was bread all around, while doves and seagulls have had fights on who’s bread it is there was none left for the homeless. I could not explain to myself how so many bread comes to lie arround at the beach, of course americans do not produce good bread at all, but it’s not that bad, so hou don’t have to feed it…

#Back in #SantaMonica

And again back in Santa Monica… Let’s finish that film of mine. 36 pictures before I can get it developed. Let’s…. shoot them all on the way to @Rose Photo I then will have some pictures from arround the block… So next to the Appartment there’s @The Water Garden I do not have any idea what’s going on there. It’s a big phat building with some water and green in the center… Of course what else would you expect. So there’s one thing I do not understand here. Americans fear fire, as they have wildfires arround all the time but they have public gas fire to warm yourself up, also note, the…

#Visit from #Austria @Fremont

#startingtobelate When I started google was telling me I’ll arrive arround 7pm so I called my colleague told him I’ll be in @Fremont arround 7pm. I did not think about the need to stop from time to time or have a breek to smoke a cigarett, grab some water, fuel the car… And I did not know that California had so many faces. Here’s one of them. When I arrived it was almost 9 pm. I had to stop more often than expected, after arround 2 hours the service light of „my“ Toyota Yaris iA was lighting up in orange, and I did not have any idea what the car…

#SantaMonica #InternetOddysey

#readyfortakeoff

#InternetWithoutPLwouldbenice To get your internet working properly is kind a pain in the ass here. I’ve been told stories that it could be not that easy, but I expected it to be easier. First things first, when I came to the appartment Internet was already working, but not really working. Back then I’ve had like 30% of Packetloss to any destination. So it wasn’t only home to austria, it was anywhere. #Ticketcreation I created a Ticket with the ISP and they sent someone over the next day. We checked the cabling, attached the Laptop directly to the modem, usual stuff. Then he measured the line and there was something like…
