Since most photodiaries focused on the commutes, to and from work, I thought I'd do something different and do one for my most frequent ride. It was my day off today and thought I'd have some coffee with somw friends, do some errands and some maybe recreational shopping along the way.
Note that the sun was really bright today, and the worst part is that I took these pics in the afternoon, westbound. I had to photoshop half of these pics for brightness.
This is in San Diego, CA. Just north to northeast of Downtown and Balboa Park, about 2-3 miles.
Now that thats out of the way, let's begin:
Ah, our humble abode. Yes, we need to do some yard work, but we just cleared a fallen tree in our yard from the storm last week. But this isnt about the shabinness of our place. Now, unto the good stuff.
Yes, that lady was jaywalking. Don't mind the crack on the street, thats one of the "better" ones. You'll see. We turn left at this intersection to University Ave, the main thoroughfare that we are gonna be taking.
My favourite mexican food place to your right. Cheap and open 24 hours.
Now we go down right on the freeway bridge...nothing of interest here.
We are now a tenth of a mile from home. The centre business district(of the neighborhood) is just up that small hill. Time to turn the electric assist on. Vrooommmmm.
And up we go. A new Walgreens is being built on that empty lot. It's a big deal because a)savon(left of the tower) sucks and b)this area is full of mom and pop stores.
....and we're up! Boy is the sun intense today.
More art deco architecture now. We are now half a mile from home. We are turning left on that intersection because we have to mail something at the post office.
There it is!
Quite busy today.
