Kitties, as you know we live in the urban jungle and have no garden, only cement. (Well, I do have my giant tree-plant, but that's it. And I am trying to consume that, leaf by leaf.) So unlike our more fortunate friends, we have no pretty flowers to show on Thursdays*, when I notice that many kitty blogs have garden tours.
*Yes, I know it's not Thursday, but I am not sure she does
We have been feeling a little left out, so we are instituting the occasional Not A Garden Tour feature, during which you will be subjected to snippets of my Human's life. Wednesday night she went to the symphony and heard Mozart's Requiem, which was transcendent, a good thing since her work remains so very sucky. (In fact, Requiem might even be an appropriate accompaniment to her days.)
She usually confines her photographic activity to taking pictures of ME, but Wednesday night she took her
cheap a$$ trusty camera along for the ride.
The evening began at Opera Plaza, which sports this cheesy fountain and steps lined with year-round Krissymouse lights. She and her companion ate at Max's Opera Cafe, a reasonably-priced, one-step-above-a-diner restaurant close to Davies Symphony Hall.
Yeah, so on the way she took this shot of a random crane. Imagine it as a daffodil or something.
Before she met her friend for dinner, she stopped in at Books, Inc. a nice local chain bookstore, which, as you can sadly see, is perhaps not long for this world as it appears customer-free. She purchased a novel called Await Your Reply because she liked the first page and she felt bad that maybe the nice clerk hadn't sold a book all day.
Okay! Now we're getting somewhere. This is City Hall which gets all lit up at night, just like Disneyland! It is on the way from the restaurant to the symphony hall. This Beaux-Arts building replaced an even fancier version destroyed in 1906.
This is embarrassingly blurry, but it is the exterior of Davies Hall. Does the Human need a new camera or does the Human need a new camera? Or maybe just some photographic skill. She hadn't even consumed an adult beverage. At least **I** never look this bad!
Here are some people walking around during the intermission. It's a beautiful building. Why didn't she take a better picture? Wait--don't get me started.
Here are all the music peoples right before the second half of the program. See all the empty seats above the orchestra? Well, you know what? They all got filled up with the really good singers who sang the Requiem
, yes they did, and it was really good, too, and loud.
So there you go, Kitties. Our first Not-A-Garden-Tour
. Stay tuned!
