Getting the Best Picture


Yesterday morning, I was being resourceful in front of this building, which once-upon-a-time was the hospital in Hollister. It was in fact the place where I was born, one of many babies that came into the world between 1907 and 1962. Today, the building is home to various offices and shops. Probably a few ghosts, too. 

Anyway, back to yesterday. I was lying on the bottom steps trying to take a good picture of the huge trees that line the sidewalk in front of the old hospital. I was doing as someone said to me about getting one or all five trees in a picture, "Be creative."

Imagine what the drivers passing by must've thought.  Or, the Mama, if she had seen me.

  1. What a beautiful place to be born!
    You certainly created a great picture . . I hope YOU felt it was worth it - because i sure think those trees are brilliant.

    1. Totally worth lying on the steps. It actually made me feel quite young again. I just noticed that this tree has a missing limb. It must've been the one that somehow lost its branch. The poor car that sat beneath it.

  2. This building looks like a movie set and I bet it is haunted. I think it is a nifty place to have been born in. Love the trees also-just makes me think of summer.

    1. It does look like a movie set! It was a nursing home for a while. We Red Cross Club members, during my jr year in high school, sang Christmas carols for the residents.

  3. What a great old building. Look at all those steps. Did the pregnant Mama have to climb those while in labor or is there a back door on the level?

    1. There must've been something level in the back. I cannot imagine pregnant women going up those steps, especially the Mama. I was a very big baby for her to carry full term. The last time I wandered inside the building, I saw one flight of steps from a back door.

    1. Thanks. I think of other people as being artists. Myself, simply nuts.
