Stockwell Cellars and Pickup

Stockwell Cellars. Fair Avenue, Santa Cruz, California.
Cameron and I were driving down Fair Avenue today, and saw this quintessential Santa Cruz scene: cruiser bike parked in front of an old warehouse with a wine operation going on inside. We parked and walked back so I could take this shot. The winemaker, Eric Stockwell (dimly visible in the shadows) introduced himself and offered us some wine.

Ford Pickup. Santa Cruz, California.
Not sure if this is Eric's pickup, or if he was riding the cruiser, but I'm still a sucker for late-model car grilles. Maybe I really am a car guy.
