That's Japanese privet, Ligustrum japonicum, a common ornamental plant in lowland California.

California is an incredibly diverse place, with elevations from 96 meters below sea level to 4700 meters above sea level, average annual precipitation from 60mm to 3000mm, temperature extremes from 56 C down to -42 C, and snowfall from zero to an all-time record of 2245 cm (88 feet).  This great range of conditions result in everything from desert salt flats to temperate rain forests and mountain glaciers, all laid out over a distance of almost 1300 km which is farther than the air distance from Berlin to Rome. That means tremendous photographic opportunities, even before considering the human-made environment and the great diversity of people found here.

Frank is currently visiting the San Francisco-San Jose area, which has valleys, hills, and low mountains having a coastal Mediterranean climate (somewhat rainy winters with little frost, and dry summers).  This mild, sunny climate affects everything from ecosystems to architecture to culture. Coastal southern California (Los Angeles, San Diego) has a warmer, drier, and sunnier version of this climate.  Other parts of the state diverge greatly from these conditions - hotter, colder, wetter, drier, cloudier, etc.  There is no one typical California, but what people hear about in other parts of the world are either the mild coastal cities (Los Angeles, San Francisco) or the famous sights elsewhere (Yosemite, Death Valley, etc.).

We had a small meetup only six of us and we took a fisheye group shot when my son was watching baseball with my brother so only four in the shot. Damian is on Nikongear more or less since the beginning in 2006 or 2007 like me. Bill came with the revival.

Thank you for the explanation and the name of the plant, Bill.

Is the smell typical or did I possibly misassign the source of the smell?

Bez, I love you and you know that I hook up well with the history of arts. My wife is Arts Historian MA and I love museums and photo books.

The scene, the picture and the edit are made with the inevitable Mountain of shots, movies and paintings in mind that I saw of California before having been here.

Your compliment is very well received though possibly not earned. It is too much of a mock off.

Personally I am more proud of the AirBnB text & picture ... it transports my way of makin fun of reality in a nice way.
