Made this shot of the last supermoon of the year, which was also the harvest moon, from the roof of the Fresno Bee with a 300mm lens a couple of weeks ago. Got us out of a jam cuz we needed a local feature photo, or standalone, for the next day’s paper.


Mid-1930s Broadway, downtown Fresno. “This was Highway 99 before the freeway went in; today, it’s not even a through street.”  Photo from Stifyn Emrys, California’s Historic Highways fb page.

Wow, I don’t recognize any of these buildings on Broadway.

Most of the existing buildings were used for industrial purposes at some point. The street has only two lanes (going both ways). There are spots where the street ends, such as at Chukchansi baseball stadium.


Good evening everyone! We imagine lots of you getting ready to bed, letting the sleepy eyes get heavier, and possibly looking over last notifications on social media sites before you completely doze off.

If you find yourself struggling a bit at night to get a full rest, we suggest you (of course) our SleepyTea. We found a review online courtesy of a lady named Amanda Wilson on her blog on our tea here.

She’ll talk about the smell of the lemony and citrusy flavor we added and the hint of lavender which soothes most headaches and anxieties! The key ingredient we put is the Valerian root which effects we surely admire (smell not so much but hey, that’s why we put lavender and Orange for!). this tea is great to have in your medicine cabinet. 🍵😋

That reminds me… *brews SleepyTea*.

Raizana Tea sells several different blends of herbal tea. They are located at the Warnors Center (corner of Fulton & Tuolumne in downtown Fresno). They’ll be open during ArtHop, this Thursday!

Prices go up, in a couple of hours!

Where are the Free, All-Ages Events?

Before I turned 21, it was a hassle trying to find any events for people under 21 and that were free. I can understand why teenagers think there’s nothing to do in Fresno Area.

I’m in the process of writing a list of regular community events that are free and all-ages. Please message me any ideas!

Pictured is the Hotel Californian in downtown Fresno. It’s on the National Register of Historic Places!

At the time it was built (1923), it was considered to be one of the most exclusive places in Fresno. To-day, it used as a senior-care facility. You can read more about the building’s history, here

California: Paradise Burning by The New Yorker

The Central Valley is responsible for feeding the world. Watch the video for a brief look of how California’s drought is impacting farmers. This isn’t an isolated issue; the drought effects everyone. 

Yes, it’s a complicated issue that involves politics. However, everyone has a responsibility in conserving water. You can find a list, here.
