A Very Small Walk Around USC

I forgot I had these photos. Just a small glimpse of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. I only spent about 30 minutes walking the campus ( I spent about an hour inside Heritage Hall which is the Athletics Hall of Fame) and I lost my notes of the buildings names:

USC is known for their film school which is considered the best in the nation:

The George Lucas Building
The Steven Spielberg Building

But in my short time there, I did see the two iconic places on campus:

Traveler- Statue unveiled in 2010. The real Traveler horse appears at all home games
Tommy Trojan-Located across from Traveler in Hahn Plaza
The University of Southern California is a beautiful campus and I need to spent more time walking it.

A Wall of Hope

I went to sandwich shop in the Tenderloin section of San Francisco, if you don't know the Tenderloin section it is a high-crime area with a lot of homeless and open drug use and I am not talking about people smoking weed, I am talking about people shooting up with needles out in the open. A lot mentally ill people wondering about.  Anyway, there is a little sandwich shop I like that is just inside the boundaries of the Tenderloin section, when I walked out I saw this wall and wanted to share it:

Thing was that nobody had defaced it, there was no beer or booze bottles around it, no needles, nobody sleeping on it, it was the one pristine section that somebody took the time to beautify it and people left it alone. It gave me hope that maybe the people who live in the Tenderloin might start to get the help they need.

The Bay and Planes

I was over by SFO one day and it was overcast and I decided to take some pics of the bay and planes doing what planes do in the distance at SFO:

It was just a peaceful 20 or 30 minutes just watching and observing. The funny thing is that when I left the little area was at and went to the SFO BART station, I got this:

Something about looking at planes land and stuff is calming to me.

Delicato Family Vineyards

I driving on Highway 99 and decided to make a stop at the Delicato Family Vineyards in Manteca. It is a small place and I did a little tasting and it is a great wine. I bought a couple of bottles for an event I was going to:

Delicato Family Vineyards might not be in Napa but they produce some excellent wine.
