San Diego Cityfest
Sunday afternoon I walked around Cityfest in the Hillcrest neighborhood of San Diego.
That’s my neighborhood so I just walked out my door with my camera around my neck and got read to observe and experience a feast for the senses:
Remember I said that feathers were all the rage here?
Feathered jewelry was everywhere
There were food samples
Plenty of Sausages
In more ways than one.
A diverse mix of people everywhere. I love it!
Lots of fun with booze, bubbles, and beach balls at Babycakes
There was food made with love.
And boy, do I ever love baklava.
This was my favorite food shot from the day (below)
I took two shots of the baklava: one horizontal and one vertical shot and am pretty happy with the vertical one. Reminds me of the hummus situation.
There are times you just can’t belabor a shot. You’re in a restaurant and people want to eat. Or you’re in a crowd and on the fly and have to get the shot, one chance, and be done with it. Unless you want to look like a total weirdo. Which is fine too and I’ve been guilty of that.
I saw and smelled lovely hand-crafted soaps, oils, and lotions.
There were vendors with bread.
Vendors with a cause.
And yes, I bought this pink tshirt.
People from all walks of life were walking around and soaking up the day.
Including this dog that was the size of a miniature pony
I love days like this! Walking around seeing the sights, being outdoors in lovely weather, people-watching, and just taking it all in. Ahh, perfect.
The man that admitted me to the beer tent/21 and up section asked me if I was a reporter as he was putting my wristband on me.
Apparently I look “official” walking around with my huge camera around me neck. I smiled and said, Yes.
I didn’t want beer. I just wanted pictures.
So that’s my report on the day.
From my last post, I’m glad you enjoyed my full moon info and it was great reading the comments about whether you believe in full moon phenomenon and if you’ve noticed anything unique the past few days.
Many of you said you’ve noticed all kinds of occurrences and some interesting, ahem, moods and emotioanl states. I firmly believe that the natural world influences us in so many ways and that if we are in tune with it, we will notice various effects. Just being mindful of these things is so fascinating.
1. Have you been to any festivals or fairs recently?
I love them and yes!
San Diego Pride Parade, August 2011

2. Best thing you’ve eaten or done this weekend?
The festival was great.
So was being with Skylar
And eating a few Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls hit the spot after walking around all afternoon.
