About a year ago, I introduced VALIS, a local tagger whose work I found in and around the East Bay. Today, I bring you more of their handy work. Enjoy.

Drip, drip, drip.

Spot the tag.
I’ve been busy these last couple months, and to prove it, I have pictures! I swear I’m not just being lazy and not blogging. Well, that might be some of it. When faced with a few free hours I have found myself sitting down and watching a lot of YouTube videos, but I chalk that up to “research” – you know, should I ever get around to making a channel and posting videos about… something. Suffice to say, I’m sure any vlogs I make will be just as well-categorized and orderly as this blog!
Er, onto the pictures.
Since moving to the Bay Area, I’ve noticed a certain tagger was quite ubiquitous in my nook of the East Bay. That tagger is Valis. The name caught my attention immediately, as I like to read science fiction, and though I’m not his biggest fan, I’m aware of Philip K. Dick’s VALIS series. I haven’t read it yet, but the name always stood out to me. I’m not sure why, exactly – perhaps because of it’s similarity to the name “Alice”, one of my favorite names and fictional characters. But no matter the reason, this tagger caught my attention, and I’ve been doing my best to document their tags as I find them. Here are a few.
Near my favorite Subway.

Outside the old Chamber of Commerce. (Possibly a copycat?)
I’ll share more as I find them.
Hope you’re all having happy holidays. Here’s some photos I took this year that I sorta liked.
Winter is ending, and many of us are trading in snow for rain. Here, we’re not so much trading in as just getting lots and lots of rain, but that hasn’t stopped me from snapping some pictures with my phone.
November is a hard month. It’s sandwiched between two big holidays that a lot of people celebrate, and if you live outside the US, it’s kind of just a waiting period between the two. And for those of us who do NaNoWriMo, it’s even more hectic. Even though I dropped NaNo this year (it’s bad when your own characters bore you), I haven’t had a lot of time for blogging, reading, etc. So here are a few cell phone photos I’ve taken in between my busy schedule.

If you can’t tell, the car is blue. Ha! Get it?
