During my lunch break at work, JP and Jeb stopped by. It was such a beautiful day out. We picked up lunch from Subway and ate it inside Petco Park like this.

On the way back, I wanted to do candid shot of us walking through downtown. I never got the perfect shot, but I captured a very JP moment. This is totally how he looks when he's intensely telling a story. It's kinda butch and kinda jazz-hands all at the same time. That's kinda how he is in general, and I love that about him.

I love this picture.

If I was in that shot, it would have been my 365 shot of the day. I went with this one instead. Look, it's my backside!

Several years ago, part of downtown San Diego was torn down to make room for a beautiful new baseball stadium called Petco Park.

I guess as a goodwill gesture to downtown, the stadium has a section called the park in the park, which is open to the public during the day. Sometimes it's fun to grab lunch and eat it in the stadium.

I feel very fortunate to be able to do that. Plus, look at that blue sky!

The Fog

This morning, on my way to work, there was an unusual fog rolling in to downtown. I was wearing my hot cop sunglasses, and through the brown tint, it looked like smoke.

I ran in to the middle of the street and snapped a pic. (The black building on the left is where I work.)

When I got to my office, I realized I was right in the middle of it. Here's kind of the same shot, from a different angle.

I looked for vengeful ghosts of mariners killed in a shipwreck but didn't see any.

Dearest Dave White,

Bad news, sir. Your beloved mural is no longer with us. The town of San Diego has expressed its concerns, and it has been removed. My sincerest condolences.

Yours truly,
Michael John d'Arnaud
San Diego, CA

P.S. San Diego has some farts to eat.


To everyone else:

Yesterday, [ profile] djmrswhite was asking if a recent Barry Mcgee mural, commissioned by the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art, still existed in downtown San Diego.

This one, to be exact:

So, my friend Liz and I went on a bit of a treasure hunt during lunch. We had a lot of trouble finding the spot, but with our tenacity, and two smart phones, we found it:

Missing mural 2

Alas, the mural has been painted over, but I was able to identify the spot by the pipe curving from the top to a 90 degree angle and a small dent in the wall that is blocked by the red car.

It was a good time, treasure hunting around downtown San Diego. I bought us both Thai Iced Teas as a reward.
