I was stopped at a traffic light on my way home from work when I saw this gentleman walking his dog across the street. I put down the window, and yelled out to the smiling gent, "I love your hat--you've got quite a collection there!"
He stopped in his tracks and walked over to my car. The light was still red as I listened to his story. Then, the light turned green and I quickly asked if I could take his photo.
"Of course," he said without hesitation. "Oh, and my name is Duane; I work as a volunteer three days a week at City Hall and the Police department."
Commuters behind me knew what we were doing and displayed much-appreciated patience despite that the light had turned green some time earlier.

Olinda was once as booming oil town in the city of Brea, and was established in the1890s (which is old for us Southern Californians). At the time, the hillside was spotted with pumpjacks, drilling as far as 8,000 feet below the surface. The Olinda Oil Museum is part of a 12-acre preserve.
The car pictured above is a classic, Ford Model T, and is part of the museum. But that's a different subject for another time.

I took this photo in the city of Commerce, a few miles east of downtown LA. It was a hot day and no breeze.
