Poppies bloom and horses prance through green meadows, oblivious to the current chaos. On a drive through San Luis Obispo County, photographer Richard Bastian snapped pictures that capture the beauty of our community in the spring.

Very nice! Except that squirrel isn’t wearing a mask! (ok, ok…)


If we’re going to be on lock-down, might as well be in one of the most beautiful places in the US!

Great pictures! I remember Richard when he would visit Mid State Motors back in the late nineties with his grandson. Hope both are doing well.
