There is a corner of San Diego called Barrio Logan, surrounding Logan Street. Out of the sense of strength and pride of this Chicano neighborhood, a park was developed under the east end of the Coronado Bridge. At the western end of the bridge is Coronado Island, famous for its expensive homes, tourists spots, exclusive shops and galleries and boat harbors. The east end, on the other hand is the total opposite. In Chicano Park, the supporting structures of the bridge have become a showcase of art done by members of the community. Beautiful, colorful, highly symbolic, and telling stories of life's struggles. A visit to the park yesterday generated photos of some of this art work.
When birding along the San Diego River, this Snowy Egret lifted off the water and I grabbed this shot. Snowies are pretty common, and I don't always bother, but I liked the way this one turned out.
