Two cast iron ends of a bench were mounted on the outside wall of a building in Old Town, Sacramento. When viewed like this, they took on the appearance of two letter K's.

A metal bumper, intended to protect the corner of a concrete building, had been converted into a delightful image of a boy posed in a hand stand. Sadly he had posed so long that a plant grew over one hand, and dirt had given him the appearance of a tough beard.

A girl on a pogo stick was created from an electric pipe emerging from the ground and terminating at a metal box. With just a bit of paint, the dull box was turned into a delightful girl on a pogo stick.

Each face of this traffic control box featured a separate portrait. To the left two people talked with a butterfly covering the woman's mouth. To the right, a woman gazed out at passersby.

The street side of the traffic control box showed another woman with flowers in her hair. From this angle, notice that both women have black-and-white, monotone faces, but both have red lips.

Harbor seals are close to the top of the cute list, right up there next to sea otters. We saw close to eighty harbor seals that day, most of them lying on shore watching us watching them.

I love the pattern of this seal's fur, but I would never entertain the idea of taking it away from her to use for myself.

To our left as we exited the harbor and entered the slough, we saw an old pier covered with sea lions. We slowly motored past them. It was quite satisfying to be at their level and so close to them. I feel like I ended up with a family portrait instead of a wildlife photo.
