Sidewalk Gym

San Diego’s climate is ideal for almost any year-round outdoor activity, something the large number of people riding, running, or walking make obvious. Outside workouts are more common now, even though gyms have reopened following their closure during several statewide shutdowns ordered by California Governor Gavin “Gruesome” Newsom in response to the SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome Coronavirus 2)—also known as COVID-19pandemic.

This morning along Meade Ave., near Utah, my wife and I passed by a workout space fashioned around a palm tree. Is someone practicing Mixed Martial Arts? Matching black motorcycle with red trim and honking SUV make me say: “Hell, yeah!” The Featured Image, taken with iPhone XS, isn’t the best composed of the four shots quickly captured. But unlike the others, this one blocks license plates. Vitals: f/2.4, ISO 16, 1/607 sec, 52mm (film equivalent); 9 a.m. PDT.
