San Diego Neon Neighborhood Signs

San Diego has some awesome neon signs representing a lot of the different neighborhoods and cities in the county, so I decided to make it a project to take photos of all of them. I THINK I have them all, but if any of you know of something I missed, let me know! It was fun seeking out the ones that I hadn’t been by before, but most of them I had already seen in my adventures throughout the city. Most of them are pretty old and have been restored, so it’s fun to see a bit of history around the city. I’m also working on actually exploring all of these neighborhoods, and eventually hope to get photos of each area. If any of you have been to/live in San Diego, what are your favorite neighborhoods/areas?

Next I have to redo them all at night, when they’re lit up! 🙂 P.S. These are all available for purchase as prints, on canvas, etc. Just send me a message!

Unleashed by Petco Surf Dog Competition

There are two things that San Diego loves: surfing and dogs. There are more things, yes, like tacos, but this is about the marriage of those two wonderful things, ergo: dog surfing. I had seen photos of San Diegan surfing dogs circulating the internet, but never witnessed it in person. When I heard about the Surf Dog Competition, I HAD to go. It was everything as promised; many surfing dogs, ranging from small to extra large, as well as some sort of buddy competition, where dogs surfed together or with their owners, as well as a dog play area, dog photo booth, and many dog-friendly vendors. We brought our sweet baby Widdle, and he had a great time! It was a little hot for him because he was a bit of a wimp, but otherwise, it is a great event for the whole fur-family! We couldn’t stay the whole time, due to Widdle’s dainty composure, but what we did get to do/see was a lot of fun!
