Larkspur CA

A  L  O  H  A !
“Living in a small town...is 
like living in a large family 
of rather uncongenial relations. 
Sometimes it’s fun, and 
sometimes it’s perfectly awful, 
but it’s always good for you. 
People in large towns 
are like only-children.” 
          Joyce Dennys











Larkspur City Hall

Seem familiar,

You saw it before 

on this truck!

















Next to City Hall,

Larkspur Fire Department

What's a town

Without an un-fussy

welcoming Bar?









“I grew up in 

a small town. 


It was populated 

by midgets.”

Thanks Friends!

Living in the slums of Detroit I don't feel like an only child although as they continue to empty out i may soon be the only resident.

I guess I grew up just outside of a small town

Wonderful buildings! I grew up in Toronto, a large city. I cannot stand our small town here. I'm much happier in our wetland! Love your buildings.

I am so impressed with the additional perspective that embiggening your photos gives. How do you do that?
And yes, on the small town front. Warmer, more welcoming. And often much, much more nosey.

The church is my favourite among these shots.

Love the neon sign, Cloudia! I've always been in a big city so can't compare it to a small town but a neighbourhood in a city becomes a town where you know most people by sight. I sometimes wish I could go for a walk and not meet anyone I know or sit in the park anonymously.

Thanks Dears! <3

There is a quaintness about a small town. What was written in my sky today? A rainbow of hope.
