Things that caught my eye: Orb Weaver Spider. Harmless to humans but use venom for prey. I love the design on the under belly. #orbweaver #spider #thingsthatcaughtmyeye #spiderweb

Looking for signs: M&M Electric, Pomona CA. I have fondness for the ‘key’ shaped building signs. There a few in highland park on York that have painted over and all that is left is a shape. I always wanted to curate a photo series of them. This one in Pomona is a good example and I dig the font. The business is still open, which makes it a double plus. #mmelectric #pomona #california #lookingforsigns #losangeles #sign #smallbusiness #red (at M & M Electric)

Things that caught my eye: rounded corners of a industrial warehouse. #thingsthatcaughtmyeye #pomona #california #street #window #sun #architecture (at South Pomona)

Looking for signs: Kitron Radio, Downtown Pomona. This business is closed and all that’s left is the sign. #kitron #radio #kitronradio #lookingforsigns #sign #pomona #california #nostalgia #california (at South Pomona)
