Foreclosure

Friday, October 1st, 2010

Southern California is beautiful. Even at this time of economic uncertainty and transition, the neighborhood is an abundant source of inspiration. The dramatic ‘Foreclosure,’ ‘Bank Owned,’ and ‘Sale’ signs stand solemn in perfectly manicured and trimmed yards, in front of ghostly empty houses. This American dream has become a nightmare for some. The vacation weather, the quintessential California palm tree, the perfectly cleaned street seam out of place in such sad scenario. Though change is good, the organic urban web still regenerates and thrives. Here is another digital ‘impression’ of my neighborhood. J Frizza

Around the Neighborhood

Walking around the neighborhood always gets my creative juices flowing. I’m sharing here a digital scene from University Hights, a neighborhood in San Diego, California. An old Victorian house in the afternoon light. J Frizza

Winter Garden

All the plants in the yard are sleepy and quiet. The winter cold air has them all hibernating, yet the garden is full of flowers. Life goes on in this colorful reality! J Frizza

Burnt Sunset

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

Here in San Diego, we have been enjoying this month of January, the most amazing sunsets: pink skies and nostalgic lights… compelling and emotional pictures… winter silhouettes against clear sky.  Here is my take on the subject, a sunset with a burnt hill, based on memories and impressions from weekly bike rides around the city.
