Occasionally, our in-house photographer is set loose from his keyboard duties, and is able to scour Ocean Beach for interesting sights and views to capture.
There is certainly something going on at the corner of Sunset Cliffs and West Point Loma. Actually, there are two things happening. First, the development of the Entryway Project.
They are testing representative samples from the construction site for native American artifacts. Apparently, some kind of artifact was found earlier at this corner, and the site has been determined to be one of some kind of significance. They couldn’t tell me much and referred me to the OB CDC.
Speaking about construction, the construction of the pipe line going through OB is always a photographic event. Here are the crews at the intersection of Cable and Santa Monica on Friday, March 11th.
And there’s the sign warning us that the construction project is not on time. It’s so far behind schedule, that the City has had to change the date on the “closed” sign – but as you can see, the “correction” is pealing off.
It’s always nice to see peace signs painted by locals stuck out there for all to see. This one is at the entrance to North Beach on West Pt. Loma.
Stupid Green Graffiti Vandal Strikes
On the other side of things, it’s always screwed up to see someone messing with someone else’s property. Here a stupid graffiti vandal has taken advantage of the outside of Dr. Jeoff Gordon’s office at the corner of Cable and Santa Monica.
This Is How Gentrification Works
This is how gentrification works. One property on a block is allowed to expand upward and outward, and now others want to follow. Here is the Cox duplex at 5164 West Pt. Loma under appeal for being
denied its massive expansion. They want to be like the 3-story Stebbins residence next door.
Finally, we have the Woodman on Ebers giving us very good advice. He’s always a pleasure to capture. Until next time, gang, when they let me out of the office again …. And in the meantime, if you have any photos of OB of your own you’d like us to showcase, send ’em on in via our email : firstname.lastname@example.org .
