Yes, indeed this is a huge olive. The Lindsay Olive, formerly of the Lindsay olive packer's co-op is now located in the parking lot of the Olive Tree Inn and Restaurant.

Here's an unusual photo of an olive swallowing a person, or in this case, the photographer of the picture at the far right. Is the giant object in this case exacting some sort of revenge? No, but this provides some perspective of the size of this olive. 08-06

Venice, CA is home to these huge binoculars. Designed by Frank Gehry, the Binoculars provide yet another reason to visit Venice. 01-07
