The lady down the street loves pigs. She's got about 57 in her front yard garden. This little fella has seen better days.
(I really wanted to 'accidentally' knock him over for this theme but I was strong and refrained.)

The remains of a German artillery embankment after shelling from Allied forces at Pont du Hoc, overlooking Omaha and Gold Beaches, Normandy, France. Oh, and 50+ years of weather.

Click on the image for a bigger version in a new window. There's also a ridiculously large version if you want to see even more detail.

This is part of an abandoned complex of military outposts, observation towers and fortifications in the Marin County headlands.

Yup, it's the same site in Marin County as the other two I posted this week. This one is looking south towards San Francisco. The huge broadcast tower on Twin Peaks is visible in the distance on the larger version.

Used to be a water treatment plant. Now it's where teens go to smoke pot and practice their spray painting skills.

Our former neighbor's house. It went up on January 27th last year. No one was seriously hurt, although the owner broke his wrist falling off of the roof while trying to initially put it out. The house is still a charred hole in the ground, they never rebuilt.

I felt bad for the fire fighters. While fighting it, the temp was around -10, with 30 mph sustained winds, and 50mph gusts. They were there fighting it for about 10 hours. The wind kept it smoldering and blowing large embers for a few days. After the fire, the owners put up signs blaming the fire fighters for not saving the house. You can see two firefighters in front of the house spraying it down in this picture.

The pre-fire house can be seen in the photo here.

The filiment was already burned out so we smashed the glass for a series of shots.

Bayport/Pine Island Fire. A lightning strike started the fire and 600+ acres of brush and trees burned. The fire jumped the road in many spots and the homes and businesses were evacuated. This sign points to Pine Island Beach and has since been replaced. It is located near the historic Bayport Inn.

I had some friends over for drinks last night. I went to bed at 2am and told them they could fight it out for the guest room and couch. When I woke up this morning, neither of them were here, but here's what my living room looked like.
