Sherman Oaks Galleria, Sherman Oaks, California, 1981 — Wayne Thom
Ground Zero for Valley Girl ‘culture’ and most famously recognized as the mall from “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” (you can make out the movie theater where ‘Rat’ worked in the upper right hand corner) — The Sherman Oaks Galleria, despite having the same name, is a now just a shell of its former self. Its current incarnation, after being renovated in 2002, is a fairly unsuccessful hybrid of an open air ‘lifestyle center’ and a mall.

There is a little piece of my heart set aside to just constantly mourning the old Sherman Oaks Galleria. I was raised here. It’s an outdoor fountain and a PF Changs now. I ache.

biomorphosis:

Tapirs are primitive animals that have remained unchanged for millions of years. Fossils of tapir ancestors have been found on every continent except Antarctica. Closest relatives of tapirs are horses and rhinos.

Its nose and upper lip are combined into a flexible snout that the animal uses to reach and pull food into its mouth. Tapirs are nocturnal animals that like to spend a lot of time in the water. They can stay under the water for several minutes. In fact, when frightened, tapirs hide in the water and breathe with their snout poked above the surface like a snorkel!
