Pacific view

The Pacific Ocean is down there on the horizon. Karen James took the photo, south of San Francisco, 2019.

When I tried to find this in 2023, I failed, because I hadn't put "Karen James" in the filename of the image, which I should have done. And I did not say, in the notes here, truck or pickup or utility boxes, so now I have, for the next time I want to find it.

I feel that getting-old thing now, about short-term memory. I appreciate the patience of my friends and relatives, and am sorry for the inconveniences of me.

More set-dressing (My Fair Lady)

I wish I had a clearer photo of it. It's all metal but the handles, seems, and just a steel wheel.

American film, 1964

In 2018, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

Gene Allen, Cecil Beaton, and George James Hopkins won an Academy Award for Best Production Design for art direction of the film.

Donald Duck

1941, Fisher Price and Disney pulltoy. So it needed four wheels to work, but I think it's a wheelbarrow. :-)

If it hasn't sold, and you want to bid, click it to see it where I found it.
I was not looking for wheelbarrows, but they're everywhere.

"Norteño fire pit"

Rick Vigil posted this in a facebook group called "Everything New Mexico: Photos, memories, canciones, recipes, art, y mas." My sister, Irene, sent it to me.

It's part of a retired wheelbarrow, set on corrugated steel, and the bolts suggest that there might be a grill down in there.

I love that it's green, and that the photographer's foot shows. I'm not sure whether Rick Vigil is the photographer. The original post is here.

Korean drama, laundry cart

A drama called Hwarang has a wheelbarrow-like cart, but raised up, and is used for laundry-related purposes in this scene.
