Salzers, Ventura

Salzers at 101 Freeway and Victory, Ventura

I went to Ventura to meet a wedding photography prospect.

PS. I booked that wedding. :)

This happened at the parking lot in Camarillo.
Nature happens.
I was very scared that the bird might come poke my eye out.

Oxnard Santa Claus

We should give the city of Oxnard proper credit for saving Santa Claus.
This (ever famous) Santa was created in 1950 for the city of Carpinteria.
He resided in the City of Carpinteria for 50 years. He watched over 101 freeway to see if our driving was naughty or nice.

There was a controversy on this Santa Clause.  They were going to kill Santa!.  Carpinteria had decided to get rid of him.
The City of Oxnard, with a team of volunteers, rescued Santa Claus and gave him a new home.

The list of the rescuers (mainly local businesses) is on location as well.

Keep watching Santa's glasses.  He wears dark Sun-glasses during Summer season.  During the winter time he wears clear glasses.

Dinner at Daphne's

I had a dinner at Daphne's Greek Cafe.
Daphne's Greek Cafe is a Greek Restaurant located at Camarillo Village Square, facing Starbucks Coffee.
Food was good, people were nice, and it was comfortable there with nice music.
On top of it, they were reasonably priced.
I think they occationally send out flyers.

Lewis Road Construction

A BIG change is going on on Lewis Road behind Old Town Camarillo.
A construction project to widen this road had just started.
They have officially broke the ground yesterday, March 24 2006.
But I definitely saw the construction going on a few days before that.

From both pictures below, you can see St. Mary Magdalen (THE most famous catholic church in Camarillo), so you can reference the location.

First picture is before the construction started.
Second image is the picture of construction in progress. This picture was taken March 21, 2006, 3 days before their official day of ground break.
