Mexican Village
The inside of the Arriba Mexican Restaurant is painted with murals in almost all of the rooms.  I always liked this one of a street scene.  It kind of reminds me of a street in Nogales Mexico, south of Tucson, just across the border.  The only exception is ...

Just a House
What is it about this house that attracts me?  I look admiringly at it every time I pass by which is quite often.  I finally stopped to take a photo.  I think it might be the combination of the red brick and those white pillars.  It's not big or elaborate o...
