San Diego, Hillcrest & University Heights

One of the things I especially love about San Diego is all of the neon signage, particularly the signs introducing the various neighborhoods. I managed to photograph two of them tonight, and also took some other shots around Hillcrest, my old home.









When I used to live in San Diego one of my favorite things to do was to go on night walks. There’s something especially calming about San Diego at night, particularly while meandering through residential streets. You can hear crickets, smell night blooming flowers- and if you are me- gaze into people’s homes in a voyeuristic fashion. I like houses- I like them for their iconic beauty, for the lives I can imagine happening inside- for me, a home seems like such an unattainable dream- a place of refuge and also suspicion.
