I woke up at four-thirty, and after tossing and turning decided that it made sense to go photographing. I have not done much in downtown Arcata for a while, so that is where I went. I think that I worked for about an hour and a half, and I think that there are several keepers.
Most of what I photographed today are buildings that I previously shot over the past five or six years. During those years, many of the buildings were re-purposed. The paint schemes almost always are altered.
I encountered a few interesting people this morning. All I can say is “what ever happened to our mental health care”. Some of the folks can be a bit intimidating while they are still afar as they verbally shout down their demons, but they seem to be calmer and almost polite as they come close. It makes me think of how a scared dog will bark, but once it gets a good sniff, that it calms down.
How things looked in 2010 on the same block.
