It was after 5:30 p.m. when we decided to take a walk along San Diego Bay. Because police had blocked the area around the Star of India, we changed our plans to walk north and went the other direction, ending up at Seaport Village. I was able to take advantage of the warm light from the low sun.
There is a yacht harbor there and I saw this boy fishing from the dock.
On the way back, I took this shot of fishing boats in Tuna Harbor.
Then we passed through the shadow of the Midway Museum. That’s an active-duty aircraft carrier across the bay at the North Island Navy base.
What is it about boxes that attracts little boys? I remember when I was a kid and my father brought some big boxes home. I was older than this boy. I was at least in the fourth grade because my memory of the boxes is in the garage of our house and we moved there in fourth grade. I used those boxes to build a fort and a pretend house inside our garage and recall having lots of fun until my younger brother knocked down the fort because I wouldn’t let him inside.
Today I was walking down Fir Street when I saw this boy playing with this box outside one of the shops. I stood nearby and took lots of shots. Rather than pick one, I’m putting up this sequence. Wouldn’t it be great if we could all have this much enjoyment from something as simple as a cardboard box? Camera was the 20D.
