San Diego Trolley

70th Street trolley stop on the Green Line in San Diego. This is about a mile from where I live.

Can anyone tell me what that one in the upper left represents? Below it is a snake, I’m guessing that’s a centipede to the right of the snake, and some kind of six-legged spider above the centipede.

Mis Sobrinos

This is from the roof of my mother-in-law’s home in Tijuana, taken by my 12 year-old nephew Alex. I let him try the camera and was pretty impressed with this shot of me with my nephews. From left to right: Angel, Benjamin, myself, AndrĂ©.

Giving away blankets in Tijuana

Walking through Terrazas in Tijuana

On Saturday, November 20th, a group from the North County Church of Christ in Escondido, California, brought 125 blankets to Tijuana. Above, a group of locals help take blankets through the colonia Terrazas.

Free Blanket

As they walked through the neighborhood, this woman approached and asked the selling price. He told her they were free and she stared at him. She asked what the catch was and he said there was none, that they came from the church around the corner. She relunctantly took a blanket double checking that it was actually free. Her expression following this picture was a sincere mix of disbelief and gratitude. That would have made a more powerful picture, but I had lowered the camera at that point to avoid further scepticism.

Testing out the Tamron 90mm 2.8 Macro lens. Things definitely look weirder the closer you get.

Another test with my new camera. Again, taken about a block from my apartment. That’s a chain link fence in the background. Perhaps the title is a bit over-dramatic but it seemed fitting nonetheless.
