I went to three different jobs to fix issues with drywall.
One place I went to, that I've been to before, is truly unique.
It's one of a couple of houses they call the "Ship of the Desert" in Palm Springs.
It sits up on Southridge Drive. Where Bob Hope had his house. Some very expensive homes up there.
Here's the view looking north out from the living room over the "Infinity Pool".
The odd looking round roof off to the left, which is across the street, is the famous Arthur Elrod designed home built in the 60's. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
It was featured in the James Bond movie "Diamonds Are Forever". And other notable thingy's.





i missed this. great shot. i love mid century modern, too.

Palm Springs really celebrates the Mid- Century Modern style... https://visitpalmsprings.com/m...
It's funny. Back in the late 60's up to about 30 years ago they were kinda dumpy homes.
Then the gay guys moved in and embraced them. And now they are worth the big bucks.


I actually... almost... went to work for Albert Frey. A well known "Modernist" architect in Palm Springs back after I graduated high school.
I was going to become architect (landscape) and applied for a job there.
I realized good architects were like good athletes.
Very few make it big enough to make good money.

I saw one in about 1978, so i knew they existed, then in 1980 I saw another and that one stayed in its roost along the Yellowstone river for a few years so he was easy to spot. But that was it: 2 birds. Then in the 90s they required power lines to have roosts above the wires so birds didn't get electrocuted, and other protections began to take hold, and now I can go down to the river and see a few of them, pretty much any day until March, when they'll move to higher ground. Right now they're stalking newborn lambs, etc. so they come in close to town. Biggest threat to them is still lead poisoning from eating dead animals/birds that were shot. 

It's still a thrill to see them. Charlie got a photo of one in town a couple of weeks ago. Hanging out by the grain silos, probably picking off pigeons. 

Sailing into Sitka, Alaska from Juneau on the ferry our last trip up there in 2006. Coming out of the Peril Strait, every 500 yards, there were the white heads of Bald Eagles in the trees lining the channel. My friend, who lived in Sitka at that time, told us they're becoming pest... of all things. 
We watched in the evening, out from his house overlooking Thimbleberry Bay... bald eagles catching salmon . Some would latch onto a fairly big fish and would have to swim to shore for the meal. They're everywhere up there.
Even down here in South California, they're showing up in the local mountains. And reproducing. There's a camera on a nest up in Big Bear showing the latest results.

Lead was banned in shotgun shells in 1991. But... https://ca.audubon.org/news/wh...
