Happy Halloween!

This morning, I walked up Meade Ave. past Birney Elementary just as the students arrived—the majority accompanied by adults, presumably parent(s). The Schoolhouse is still “in escrow”, and I begin to wonder if anyone will ever buy the place. That the staging furniture remains within can’t be good indication. I say now, for the first time, that the property is across from Birney, and therefore helluva attractive location for families.

Passing each escorted kid, I could feel the vibrant enthusiasm effusing from their little bodies. It’s Halloween! Trick-or-Treat is hours away, and surely teachers will celebrate somehow. So the wait will be short before sugary delights find them. 

Later, when walking down Monroe from our soon-to-be-fully-vacated old apartment of 10 years, I pulled out iPhone 7 Plus to capture some Halloween decor. The Featured Image is somehow appropriate as my Cats of University Heights series goes into its 13 month. Vitals: f/1.8, ISO 20, 1/176 sec, 3.99mm; 12:07 p.m. PDT. Pic cropped and Vivid Cool filter applied in Apple Photos.


As for the bodies, well, we now know where they’re buried, eh? Vitals are the same except 1/336 sec shutter speed and 12:07 p.m. I applied Vivid Warm filter. The house behind the fence was a foreclosure when we moved to San Diego in October 2007. Today’s value must be scary.
