Living on the edge in San Diego

We are famous for having frequent earthquakes and brushfires. These newly built houses enjoy a terrific view and great privacy but at a risk. House prices are still dropping, down 25-30% for the year. These houses currently sell for about $250 per square foot (ex: 4 br, 3 ba, 3,329 sq ft, $755,000). My house is down below in the canyon currently $225 per square foot.

Moonrise over Del Cerro

San Diego had perfect weather to see the closest approach of the moon this year.   It rose over the Del Cerro hills flooding the canyons with bright reflections of the season.    As the moon rises it appears even larger than it will later in the night when it’s higher in the sky.  With this closest approach we could see this years largest moon appearance, an illusion but beautiful.   My home, third from right, sits on the rim of this canyon.  Driving home from work I saw this scene and could not pass up an opportunity to take a picture similar to “Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico 1941” by Ansel Adams.
