Here are a few interesting photos from another meandering walk downtown. I took these yesterday morning as I headed down from Cortez Hill to catch the trolley at the Santa Fe Depot. I know, there are closer trolley stations, but I was itching to venture outside into the world and got an early start…
From a distance that mural looks really awesome. The security guard said perhaps he’d let me onto the patio if I were swing by in the middle of a work day. According to some research on the internet, it was painted fairly recently by Maxx Moses, the same artist who created that super fantastic Ancestors street mural in Barrio Logan.
Yep, that’s the same Seward Johnson who created the huge Unconditional Surrender sculpture by the USS Midway Museum. He’s best known for making life-size pieces like this one, which stands by a doorway on Broadway.

Is the sculpture bronze? Even the suit? what about the magazine? This is one of the coolest sculptures I’ve ever seen! are you sure that’s not a person pretending to be a sculpture?
It is freaky, isn’t it?! Yes it’s an actual sculpture, including the clothes. (Unless someone has stood stone still for many years!) I’m not sure if it’s bronze, but I think so. And the magazine is metal, too!
