This past weekend was the Palo Alto Art Festival on University Avenue just down the street from Stanford University. It is a street of restaurants, chic shopping opportunities, and a movie theater which now shows old films, unable in these times to compete with the multiplexes and Netflix. University Avenue also featured a great Borders bookstore, housed in the former Varsity Theater where I saw a number of great rock and roll shows, like Van Morrison and Steve Forbert, before it morphed into the bookstore where I spent many happy hours looking for something interesting to read. Photograph number two shows the chained off entrance to the Varsity Theater. There's also the new Apple store. All photographs taken with the Sony RX 100.
