Today, a selection of street details that caught my eye in Los Gatos, California. I was particularly drawn to the patina of aged wood and painted corrugated metal siding on the backside of a shop called Natural Creations. Plants growing on the inside of the building peeked through cracks in the structure. A toy dog was humorously placed in the hole of a knot in the wood siding.

Other elements that caught my eye were vibrant colors, textures, and interesting shapes. I liked the bold blue of an Exit sign, a fire engine red door, pumpkin colored trim with tile accents, the orange and green textured patterns of a slate tile, and a No Smoking Sign that keeps our smoker friends from Greece away from California. Each of these elements tells a story in and of themselves, but more than that, they tell a story about what catches my eye.
