Drink sangria in the park
Later when it's dark
We go home.
Just before I left for Abiqua Falls this morning, I learned that Lou Reed died. I've always been a casual fan -- I love some of his work, and other stuff isn't my thing. However, I have a tremendous respect for his role in music history, and I know that a ton of the music I love was directly influenced by Lou Reed and VU.
After I had a perfect first trip to Abiqua, I followed that with a mildly disastrous trip to Upper Butte Creek Falls. As I was taking a 15-second image, my PoS tripod fell over -- one of the legs telescoped closed just as I turned my back. My camera ends up in the water, I lost my lens cap in the panic, and my ND filter for my wide-angle lens is destroyed. Fortunately, the camera is fine, but I don't know if the lens is unscathed. It looks fine, but the filter won't come off. What a perfect day.

This window full of heads, arms and legs of antique dolls can not attract the attention of those who walk through Via di Ripetta. The name of this charming shop is “Artistic Restoration Squatriti: dolls hospital.” If you walk through the door, time seems to have stopped here: toy soldiers, dolls and ancient puppets are here to welcome you. The Squatriti family has Neapolitan origins and transmit the art of restoration from generation to generation. In little more than 15 square meters the two owners take care of their little patients tirelessly, the dolls are made of wood or cardboard, often late nineteenth century, family heirlooms or collectibles whose buyers come from all over the world. Like any good doctor, when the little patient is ‘cured’ is returned to the owner with a notebook indicating diagnostic repairs incurred and advice on how to treat it.
