Lamp Posts, Banners, and Baseball by aglennc

Lamp Posts, Banners, and Baseball

We went to San Diego today for a meeting and tour of their new Central Library. Afterwards, while John was doing did some research there I wandered the neighborhood which includes our San Diego Padres Petco Park. All the lamp posts in the neighborhood have Padre baseball banners on them. I liked this one because of the background color. Go Padres!
The jacaranda is beautiful Anita. Fav.

With the Dodgers in town on a Saturday, y'all sure picked the wrong day to come down to East Village!
Nice shot.

Nice scene with the jacaranda and the baseball posters! But I have to say
Go Dodgers!

Lovely purple jacaranda and good luck to the Padres. Perhaps you can help me with a crossword clue as I couldn't find the answer on the Internet .What do you call 'the act of putting the ball in play at basketball 3-3'

@maggiemae I'm a baseball fan from way back.... from the time I was just a kid. The Padres are San Diego's major league baseball team.

@jrambo001 You are so right there, John. Everywhere we went around the village ..... Dodger blue. We were down there for a tour of the new library. Wished we could have stayed for the game, but.....

@redy4et I USED to say "Go Dodgers"...... before we moved from Dodger country to San Diego in 1970. Had to change my allegiance.

Great composition with that off-center Padres sign against the jacaranda tree in the middle ground. I am just loving how they are all blooming everywhere in San Diego.

@digitalrn This is right downtown in an area that has been revitalized over the past several years. Petco Park is, literally, steps from the incredible new library. Lots of new eaterys, high rise condos/apartments. Used to be a downtrodden area of downtown -- homeless, etc
