Friday Flashback #042 …

One thing I will definitely miss this year: my annual trip to New York City. I’ve gone to the Big Apple almost every year since 1971 (God, that’s almost 50 years now!). It started as a bus trip to go to comics conventions, but I quickly fell in love with the city outside the confines of a comics-filled hotel ballroom (I still love that, though). Here’s Gapstow Bridge in the southern part of Central Park, near the Plaza Hotel. It’s an amazing site for photos. I know I’ll get back to NYC soon … It just seems weird not making my usual fall pilgrimage.

Up in the air, somewhere … I’m guessing this is the approach to the Portland Airport on one of my trips “home” to visit the “mothership” (Powell’s Books). Portland is a little too quirky for me, but God, I LOVE that bookstore, and am totally fine going up just to visit that store once a year or so. I like taking photos from planes; I like the curve of the horizon, the patchwork grids of the ground, the texture of the mountains and–when you’re low enough–the water.

Okay, back to San Diego and the up-and-coming section of town known as South Park. This neighborhood is in transition and seeing a lot of new restaurants and shops coming into play, but there is still the old, faithful businesses that have been there forever, like California Liquor, with this charming mural.
