I was actually trying to get a photo of my son's Stomp Rocket going up in the air, which of course, was impossible, using a camera phone. But this unintentionally and annoyingly arty photo did manage to capture one of my pet peeves: a Northern California palm tree. Unless they're growing in a row down the middle of Dolores Street in San Francisco, palm trees in Northern California look mentally challenged to me. They are so non-native and weird looking and they're often planted right next to a California Oak, or even an evergreen. Awful. This view is tiny and about all I can take of the things. People, please--no more palms in Northern California.
