Sweep …

I love the sweep of San Diego Bay in this photo, which was taken right after you come out from walking under the Coronado Bridge. It's an area that I walk through at least twice a week and the view is always changing, dependent on the clouds, the bay traffic, and the ships unloading. This... Continue Reading →

Just About Every Time …

Just about every time I walk out my back door, I'm greeted with a scene like this. It's hard not to be amazed each time. Some days, of course, are more beautiful than others and some days that quaint little sailboat is replaced by skidoos or a giant battleship or equally humongous freighter, carrying bananas...

Bridge and Boats …

Keep it simple, stupid. I live in such a ridiculously scenic town and I'm so lucky to do so, since travel is not entirely viable right now. I have a short trip planned in about three weeks, but we'll see if I'm able to pull it off or if I'm "stuck" here at home. In... Continue Reading →

Sometimes the Clouds Change Their Minds …

Call it the wind or my favorite San Diego weather expression, which the weather guys and dolls love to use: "atmospheric river," but sometimes the clouds just change their mind and become something totally different. I love this recent shot above Coronado (palm tree for location verisimilitude), where the clouds just totally decided to change... Continue Reading →

Happy Anniversary (to me) …

This weekend marks the fourth anniversary of my big move across the pond (well … bay) to Coronado from downtown San Diego. By 2017 I had become pretty disenfranchised with living downtown. I moved into the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter in December of 1998 and at first it was everything I ever wanted: An... Continue Reading →

Today’s Word …

Well, I'd rather be referred to as eclectic than eccentric. The latter implies a polite description of a crazy person wearing a tin-foil hat ranting about aliens, while the former denotes a person of rare taste, at least in my lexicon. This building is from a recent jaunt to Point Loma, part of San Diego.... Continue Reading →

Somewhere, Beyond the Sea …

It's sometimes hard to believe that beyond that wall is the rest of the world. This little corner of La Jolla, CA, which is known as the Children's Pool but is really the seal pool, is often mired in controversy, but it's one of the most naturally beautiful areas on the San Diego coast. Having... Continue Reading →

Be True …

I've taken a couple of weeks off from this here blog thingy to do some housekeeping chores and to think a bit on what's next for me and this endeavor. I have discovered that I do like writing again and want to focus on that aspect of the blog, and less a record of all... Continue Reading →

California Redux …

I posted a similar photo to this one a while back (click here to see it). There is nothing more quintessential to me than a Volkswagen van, and Coronado, where I live, has numerous vans dotting the street. I plan to do a "Vans of Coronado" feature on my Instagram account one day, right before... Continue Reading →
