Last week we had a nice fog covering the high spots of downtown San Diego. Crisp and clear below a hundred feet or so and then...
On days like this a skyscraper really does scrape the sky.
I've become a fan of these tall beings. They can be thin, glass shrouded and light on their feet like the Pacific Gate Building below or broad shouldered and linebacker massive like the Jail building in the second pic. The third building, whose name I failed to note, is still a parking lot on Google Maps at the corner of Broadway and Pacific.
We don't have many of the thick and heavy marble building like you see in DC or New York and this gives a different feel to our downtown. Our nimble giants let in more light and reflect the warmth and sunshine that San Diego is known for. It's the difference between walking in a redwood forest and an aspen forest.
