Out & about in Clairemont Mesa East

Out & About

When I came to San Diego in April 1993 I was amazed at the neighborhood pride that was exhibited here, and continues to be exhibited. Although San Diego has over 1.3 million people, many identify more with their neighborhood than with the City of San Diego per sé. At the time of this post, there are 120 neighborhoods. Many of them have pretty cool signs welcoming you to the neighborhood, like Hillcrest:

It often is quite fun to take a walk or bike ride around the neighborhoods to see what merits taking a picture of.

Recently I was in Clairemont Mesa East for a CPR & First Aid Class:

Clairemont Mesa East is mostly commercial businesses and light industrial. I took an early morning stroll, a lunch stroll, and an afternoon stroll and found quite a few things to take pictures of. I present a few of them here.

In this first picture, I have no idea what the third flag (the one on the left) is. The middle is the United States and the right is California. Notice that the third flag is separated from the U.S. and California?

This is the building where my CPR & First Aid class was held:

That does count as a selfie, right?

There was lots of industry. Industry always provides some nice pictures.

There was a huge crane which could be seen from throughout the neighborhood, as you’ll see.

    That crane looks like something out of War of the Worlds! I like what you did to/with the photo above the first crane picture.

    (PS “You’re so vain, you probably think this selfie’s about you”) 🙂

      It depends on what part of the sunny day. The mirrored front faces west, so the setting sun would be reflected in it, but by that time, everyone’s left this office/light industrial neighborhood and gone home.

      Look at the mirrored skyscrapers, though, in so many cities. So I don’t see this short building being a major problem to anyone.
