It’s now late October. We’re experiencing Santa Ana winds in Southern California, so downtown San Diego in the morning was clear, dry, and promised to warm up quickly.
I took a long random walk to enjoy the early sunlight. I started from the top of Cortez Hill and meandered through East Village and the Gaslamp Quarter.
Halloween and Dia de los Muertos are fast approaching, and I noticed signs of the coming festivities.
Not all of these photos are pleasant. They represent a few of the many things that I saw.
