OCEAN BEACH, CA. Not all scenes or photographs of OB are scenic or pretty or even worth viewing. Unfortunately, the artistic talents of graffiti artists and people who carve in the cliffs and the sandstone are not very appreciated by the rest of us.
Here are some not-too-pretty scenes of Ocean Beach by our blogger/ photographer Dave Gilbert. Much of this looks like gang tagging, and we don’t want this to turn into some kind of anti-gang rant calling for more police protection. That is not the purpose of our displaying these images. Such graffiti exists in many communities and some of those neighborhoods have local citizens and residents who go out and paint over the taggings.
Again, if you have some photos of OB – pretty ones or not-so-pretty ones, and you think we should showcase them, send them to us via email : firstname.lastname@example.org
Meanwhile, Dave Gilbert’s lens have turned up some of the dirty corners of our little seaside community. What do you think?
