California's contributions to American culture are many, and especially obvious in music and movies.
The Museum of Monterey features the music and culture of the hippie 1960-70's with a "hippie" Volkswagen van. The movie Monterey Pop plays continuously, with its sounds of the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival - Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Janis Joplin, Ravi Shankar, Otis Redding, the Jefferson Airplane, and the Mamas and Papas.
Photographed with a Canon 5D Mark II digital SLR with a 15mm Canon fisheye lens, on a Nodal Ninja VR mount, Really Right Stuff ballhead, and Gitzo carbon-fiber tripod. Stitched with PTGui Pro 9 on a Macintosh Intel Core 2 Duo iMac, retouched with Photoshop CS3.
