I was to meet a Realtor at 8:30 this morning to sell him two more Photographic Art prints as close-of-escrow gifts for his Clients. I sold two Photographic Art prints to him this past Sunday, too.
Yahooooooooo! I’m rich! I’m rich!
I was meeting him at his office, which is about ten miles west of me. However, morning rush hour traffic would make the drive seem like fifty or sixty miles. Thus, for an 8:30 meeting in the heart of Mission Valley, I left at 5:30. I hear you now, exclaiming, “Three hours to go ten miles!” Yes, but we need to qualify that.
I drove down University Avenue through historic parts of San Diego, basically examining every building on both sides of the avenue, occasionally (occasionally?) stopping to take pictures. In three hours, I took 471 pictures and discovered some really neat buildings and businesses. Some of them will require further research on my part, such as this gem:
That face like an Egyptian is on a building in historic City Heights.
But it’s not the only one. There were dozens of them along the east and west sides of the building:
I’m just whetting your appetite for more which I’ll post soon. The building is fascinating, and I found several online sources concerning its history.
Right now, though, I have to go feed Zoey the Cool Cat, who happens to be sitting on my desk in front of the computer monitor staring at me as if to say, “You know I’m hungry, right? Your WordPress readers can wait. I can’t! Feed. Me. Now!”
After I feed her, I need to unpack some more boxes and hang some more pictures.
Need a unique gift?
Anniversary? Birthday? Graduation? Marriage?
