Peeled and Tangled Rive R. Birch is very self-conscious about his appearance. He doesn't like the Fall and Winter months because he is completely exposed showing his scraggly hair and cracking skin. To make things worse, the local squirrels agree. But, the squirrels are more concerned about the neighborhood dogs being able to spot them easier during those times of the year. Personally, I think Rive's true character comes through and I like it.

Let Her Fly Zelda first got the idea to try skydiving when she passed this sign on the Interstate. Unfortunately, Zelda's attention lingered a little too long on the sign and not the traffic. No skydiving for Zelda! Kern County, California 2016 #Let_Her_Fly #Kern_County #California #Driveby_Photography #Hog_Wash_Book_Fourteen #Hog_Wash #Hogwash
Day Dreams Wildflowers are smart. The best ones are always on the other side of a fence. Usually, a barbed-wire fence. They do that to antagonize people. This particular day, the poppies were not only on the other side of a valley, the best ones were on the other side of a mountain lazily rocking in the breeze! No stems, no seeds, just California gold. Bena Road, Kern County, California 2016 #Day_Dreams #Hog_Wash_Book_Thirteen #Bena_Road #Kern_County #California
Rolling Along Carl is a truck driver. He loves this time of year on the road. All kinds of things pop up to make his trips interesting and keep him awake. He'd much rather see flowers than the ass end of another semi in his windshield! I-5, Kern County, California 2016 #Rolling_Along #Hog_Wash_Book_Fourteen #I5 #Kern_County #California
On The Edge Meet Fen C. Epost. He's hung out on this hill for a number of years now. He's been through wire piercings, droughts, fires, coyote skinnings and photographer assaults. He's a tough dude. I suspect he'll be around for a while longer. Bena Road, Kern County, California 2016 #On_The_Edge #Bena_Road #Kern_County #California
Cackleberry Basilica d'Egg celebrated their latest addition to their gigantus collection. Unfortunately, while Friar Scrambled was congratulating the egg parents, the egg rolled off his shoulder and hit the ground. When the money and candy spilled out of the cracked egg, Scrambled knew the birds had pranked him, again. You just can't trust birds!

Bloom Begins Air pollution in the San Joaquin Valley has taken a dramatic upswing in the last week or so due to the number of photographers and gawkers out shooting or viewing wildflowers. It's not the vehicle exhaust increasing the pollution, it's the people farting in the wind.

Uncovered Homer Hicklebaugh had a 1970's mindset which wasn't all that strange since it was the 1970s. Back then, when you remodeled a building, you just covered up the whole exterior. It didn't matter that the building was a historical bank, just cover it up. Fast forward to the 2010's. Homer Hicklebaugh, Jr. decided to remodel this same building and to his surprise, he realized Daddy had covered up a historical building. It won't be long and this old bank will be fully restored making photographers extremely happy! The above story is hogwash. Everything is true except the names. The Securities Trust Bank was built in 1910. The building was to be demolished by current owner, Sam Abed, when the old bank was discovered. At that point, Sam received permission from the City of Bakersfield to restore the building.

Hillside Rivals There is always an ongoing battle between bladderpods and poppies. Poppies prefer hillsides and, thus, do not like other plants infringing. But, bladderpods also like hillsides and they are much larger than poppies. Bladderpods are bullies at times, but, the poppies are hardy and can take the heat.

Feast Vladamir Batwing came up with a brilliant idea. He opened a restaurant of fine foods to fatten up the local populace. He feeds people and then later feeds on the people. That's what vampires do. Bakersfield, California 2016 #Feast #Hog_Wash_Book_Fourteen #Bakersfield #California #Hog_Wash #Hogwash #The_Mark #Kern_County
Birds of Pray All birds in the San Joaquin Valley eventually land here. It's a great place to look out over the southern end of the valley if the smog permits. It's also a great place to poop.

Visit A friend of ours blew into town last night from Albuquerque, New Mexico on his way to San Francisco. That's the thing about photography, you meet all kinds of interesting people and they become friends. We had the chance to run around with Patrick a few years ago in Albuquerque when he acted as a local guide for four other photographers. That's another thing about photography, you don't always meet people face-to-face and yet, because of a common interest, you become friends online and if you do get to meet face-to-face, well, "I know you!" Photography is exploring, shooting, meeting. Bakersfield, California 2016 #Visit #Hog_Wash_Book_Fourteen #Bakersfield #California #Kern_County #Padre_Hotel #Hog_Wash #Hogwash
They Will Come Clem had a few odds-n-ends lying around the ranch, so, he put these signs together and stuck them in the ground across from the Post Office. People started showing up looking for something to eat or to refuel their vehicles. Clem thought, "Well, shucks. Maybe a cafe and gas tank wouldn't be a bad idea."

More Or Less Sydney had an addiction to cowboy clothes. It's something that he could never shake throughout his entire life. He was constantly ridiculed by the home boys about his choice of garments. But, as Sydney always said, "There are worse things to be addicted to!"

Left Behind The last time anyone saw Bill, was on this road. Hector was following Bill when a bright light appeared ahead of Bill and poof, just like that, Bill and his car were gone. Hector still doesn't know what happened, but, visits this spot regularly to watch the trains. It's just one of many local mysteries like the day Tex's cow, Elsie, plowed 20 acres with the old Deere!

Meaty Drops Of Shark Bait Pete the Pigeon is eyeballing Oscar the Owl wondering how Oscar can sit on those bird deterrent spikes. That's got to hurt! No wonder owls are so mean.

Close, But, Not I had to get on a step ladder to get this shot of the moon. Four feet makes a huge difference with the lens I have. Bakersfield, California 2016 #Close_But_Not #Moon #Hog_Wash_Book_Thirteen #Bakersfield #California #Kern_County #Hog_Wash #Hogwash
