More snippets from my miscellaneous folder that I’m cleaning out.
Arguably, San Diego’s most upscale (i.e., expensive) mall is Fashion Valley. It’s so expensive that I don’t even look at it as I’m passing by on the freeway. However, recently I had occasion to be there at night after hours and found some floor art that I could not bring myself to walk on.
No one else would walk on it, either, everyone walking up to it, gazing for a few seconds, and then walking around it.
For as long as I can remember, I have always loved long hallways and tunnels. Here’s a view at a hotel that I was at recently:
At the same hotel as in SNIPPET #2 was this mirrored ball ceiling:
Oh the fun if all of those were disco balls (smile if you remember disco balls!). However, in each one of those mirrored balls is a selfie:
Those DO count as selfies, right?
Yes indeed! (But I have no idea what kind of a store that was!)
For Dalmations only.
In 2012, California’s 80,500 farms and ranches received $42.6 billion for their output, ranking the state #1 in cash farm receipts with 11.3 percent of the US total. Agricultural pests, then, are taken seriously. The following picture shows an agricultural pest control officer checking a control container on a citrus tree on private property. Let’s hope there’s nothing in it!
It does no good to have wheels if you have no wheels.
Let’s return to the upscale Fashion Valley mall (see SNIPPET #1). How upscale is it? Here is a video of one of their light benches:
Let’s stay at Fashion Valley exploring how upscale it is. Following is a video advertisement. What’s unique about this advertisement is that it’s a projection. The projector was mounted in the ceiling and projecting on the floor. I had no problem walking on this floor advertising.
Lastly, still at Fashion Valley, following is a video of their beautiful (upscale) water fountain in the center of the mall. To me, water is a prime requirement defining upscale, but for too long Fashion Valley was missing water features. Heck, it was even hard to find a drinking fountain; probably the businesses that sell drinks vetoed the idea of having drinking fountains providing free water!
