Downtown Mini Photo Safari (Part II)

It's hard to stay in the office on a day like this . . .



So I decided to spend my lunch break today (a.) shooting photos for upcoming stories and (b.) compiling another Downtown Mini Photo Safari for the blog. Enjoy!

No comment needed . . .



Fire alarm at the Harmon Building . . .



A little culture-jamming . . .



Will this thing ever be installed . . . ?



HELLO . . . Hello . . . hello . . .



Rockin' out at Tollefson Plaza . . .



On a serious note, flags are at half-staff today . . .



Finally, I was waiting for the Link in the Theater District when I saw an old man -- suit, sun glasses, fedora, and cane -- trip and fall face-first outside the Sanford and Sons / Middle Floor Merchants building. I ran across the street, helped him up (sun glasses broken, bleeding cut above his right eye), and offered to call for medical attention. He repeatedly declined and went on his way. If you're out there, hopefully you're doing OK.

also:

the convention center reminds me of the scene from star wars where the jawa sand crawler is stopped to show a line up of surplus droids in remote moisture farm

Guitar guy was just free-stylin' it -- just letting the notes happen. He had the speaker/amp cranked all the way so it was tinny and loud enough to loosen some fillings.

Those tables and chairs somehow look like an art installation.

That is awesome that someone was putting the free power outlets to use. We could use more spontaneous rocking out!
