Fort Point The Other Side

This is the south side of the Golden Gate Bridge and on the west side of Fort Point. I had tried previously to access this area but failed, I had started out from Baker Beach and the beach disappeared into a cliff. On this trip I started further north and in the excitement I trespassed (I did not see the sign) but my daughter pointed it out to me on the way out. I noticed we were watched very closely by a police officer on a bike and the wind surfer in the last image. At first I thought it was just a wind surfer but I noticed he was very interested in what I was doing. They did not approach me but they let me know I was being watched. The first and last image were the only shots taken after I had trespassed.

Randy's Donuts

This is Randy's Donuts in Inglewood California on Route 66. It was built in 1953 as a second location of the Big Donut chain that is now defunct. Although several locations still exist under the names Kindle's Donuts, Donut King II, Dale's Donuts and Bellflower Bagels. Randy's Donuts has been featured in many movies and music videos. It was in the movies Get Shorty, Ironman 2 it also was in Randy Newman's video I Love La, the Red Hot Chili Peppers video Californication (although it is missing the R) it also has been in video games as well as many other videos and movies.

If you look at the blue paint at the lower right you will notice rubber left over from the filming of Ken Block's movie Gymkhana 7. Here is a clip from the movie featuring Randy's Donuts. Here is a film of the filming of and production Gymkhana 7.
