Yesterday afternoon, I was walking around downtown after leaving work at the language school when I decided to take some pictures. It has been a while since I’ve actively snapped pictures and shared them. I’ve taken so many pictures of Downtown San Diego that I was starting to think that there was nothing left for me to see. However, when I was walking back and forth between the language school’s two campuses, I saw the grafitti on the walls of the old California Theatre building and wanted to take them. Unfortunately, I had no camera on me, so I more than made up for it yesterday.
Last week, I took some pictures in the San Diego Central Library, and I came across this card catalog cabinet, which is very rare. Most of the other branches in the San Diego Public Library system has phased them out, especially with modern facilities out in suburbia. Central Library, however, is still in a antiquated, late 1930’s building. Even with modern equipment here and there, there are reminder’s of the library’s past. This is definitely a beautiful reminder.
This Tom of Finland-like ad, plastered on the now defunct Landlord Jim’s, caught my attention yesterday when I was in Downtown for a few errands. The poster was very arresting, even in its weathered state.
