Santa Barbara, California, the “American Riviera,” is nice little beach town a couple of hours northwest of Los Angeles. It is surrounded by some beautiful natural scenery, many homes and buildings were designed using the Spanish Colonial Revival architectural style, and there isn’t much light pollution (i.e. once it’s nighttime, don’t expect to be able to see much.)
Also, it’s the home of the photo of the week:
While walking around town late last year, I came across this striking pine tree, or what I now call a “powerline pine.” It appears that, when the city was installing electricity cables along this street, they spared the tree by merely giving the mid-section a buzzcut. Making room for the environment, or too little too late?
