Lunchtime Photo

A couple of weeks ago, as you know, I visited the LA Arboretum. But first I had lunch at the Farmer’s Market. After that, in the time between the arboretum closing and then reopening for their evening show, I dropped over to Caltech to take a few pictures and check out the monopod.

You’ll see photos of all of this eventually, but let’s start with the Farmer’s Market. I frequently get complaints that my lunchtime photos are not related to lunch at all, so here you go: a pair of pastrami sandwiches from Phil’s Deli. That’s a lunchtime photo.

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
