A raised garden bed and path around it replaced a lawn in the front of the house. As you can see, the raised garden bed really improved the look of the front yard.

Some Lit Most Dark

While waiting for a trolley on King Street in San Francisco, I notice that only two of several windows were lit at 10:00 at night. The street and building lights dipped into the orange and gave the entire scene an eerie feeling.

Two boarded up windows were found in an old brick building in downtown Sacramento, California. The window on the left contained a bit of art that read, "Doomsayers." The window on the right was two windows inside one frame. The left window in that frame was gone. The right window in that frame was a bit more present but still lacked glass.

Shut Door Stencil

by Bryan Costales

The words, "Shut Door." were stenciled to a roll-up door. The meaning of the sign was ambiguous. Was it a command to those that used the door to always leave it shut? Or was it a notice to strangers that this was a working door that was currently shut? Or was this notice that this door was permanently shut and would never open?
