Here are my ten favorite lunchtime photos of 2017. They are not in any particular order.

Have I mentioned before how much better they look on a 4K monitor? Not to mention that everything else looks better too. After using one for the past year, ordinary “his-res” monitors now seem like browsing the internet with foggy glasses on. If this is something you care about, run, don’t walk to your favorite computer dealer and get a 4K monitor. They’re less than $300 these days.

#1. Sunset at the old Tustin Marine Corps Air Station.

#2. Boy at Huntington Beach.

#3. Fireworks on the 4th of July.

#4. Winston Churchill and the Houses of Parliament.

#5. Balloons at Disneyland.

#6. The Santiago foothills at dawn.

#7. Yellow house in Ballina.

#8. Tomatoes.

#9. Two men in Kenmare.

#10. Monarch butterfly on a milkweed plant.

#11. Exasperated girl at Disneyland.

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
