Some of my holiday snaps are back from the lab. I’ll spare you the party and baby photos, but you might want to smile wryly at the Americana.

I saw this blunt window sticker on the freeway to the Norton Simon Museum at Pasadena.

General admiration of Britain even extended to the bumper (I mean “fender”) decoration of a classic car at a local fair I attended. The immaculate vehicle in the photo was the overall winner in the end.

I had to give chase on foot, then jump on and off a bus to get an action shot of one of only about three people I saw riding bicycles in a week in LA. Fuji Superia 400 film: it’s the dog’s bollocks.
