With Spring, Strawberries!
Strawberries are ready to eat and buy at this field off of State College. Many stop by and buy a bunch for the road. Yummy, yummy! Food stops are not just done at MacDonalds! Of course, this is just one of many throughout the farm rich state of California.
Old Charm of the New Amerige Heights
Amerige Heights is a new community within Fullerton. It is pleasurable to go for a walk on the hills and through the town center which has shops and semi-exquisite dining. Here is where locals go to hang out with friends have a coffee or tea, read comfortably and just unwind. Pictures to come!!
Fullerton- Full of the Good Town Spirit
"An All-American Town Outside of Disneyland"
Welcome to Fullerton, a big town of over 100,000 located in Orange county. If you are outside the U.S. and want to see a real city within the often pretentious Los Angeles and close to the ultra-fantastical world of Disney, come here.
The most impressive part of Fullerton is the downtown area with very unique shops, featuring a good selection of vintage and antique boutiques. Also, the restaurants and cafes here are some of the best that O.C has to offer.
For all of those considering to visit Disneyland, I recommend that you go up Harbor Blvd and head to Fullerton for both a day trip and nightlife, as well as accomdations and sight-seeing. Many locals would agree that Fullerton is arguably a better overall city to Anaheim, home of D-Land.
Just when one thinks that preservation is a foreign word in America with the "raze the old roof" mentality, there is special attention to preserve downtown Fullerton. And yet , this town is modern at the same time, raising new Spanish villa style apartments and other establishments. Ever-growing in population, Fullerton is in constant transition and it's nice to see from neighboring La Habra.
Pictured here: Church of Science and Religion
The brick, gothic architecture of the church fits nicely into the old look for downtown Fullerton.
"A Peculiar Sculpture"
This was captured in grassy park/rest area adjacent from Fullerton College. It just caught my eye. I see a tiki face here. It is just my crazy observation or not? Enlarge this one!
Oh, who doesn't love that beautiful blue sky above?
Home of the Schooled
I go to University here, though I hear people also come from other places to come see our famous Disneyland theme parks, right next door. Fullerton can be very cool for antiques, food, gothic shopping, and a diverse cultural range...get it?
Famous people who went to Cal State Fullerton University include: Singer Gwen Stefani from the band "No Doubt" and Kevin Kosner, who donated part or all of our baseball field to the school. Famous artists are: Patrick Nagel, Mark Kostabi and Fred Tomaselli. I'll add more when I learn of them.
The latest photo is from 1/5/02 where I met Weird Al Yankovich at the Mark Ryden opening at Grand Central in Santa Ana. If you are around that area the first Saturday of the month, they have openings and festivities. We have been blessed enough to have had both Mark Ryden AND Robert Williams in our gallery on the corner of Broadway & 1st street in Santa Ana. The Ryden show is incredible and he was gracious and sweet to all his fans. So was Weird Al!
6/24/02, My friends Kozyndan had an opening at the Giant Robot Store in L.A. It should be up for a while. You can see their work on www.kozyndan.com Poly has a show at the Sarah Bain Gallery on the Brea Promenade through the end of this month. Don't miss that!
