Last minute trip to San Jose

I was completely unprepared for this trip... went last minute and while I was there I really wanted to capture that old time feel in downtown San Jose. When I look at some of those buildings, I picture a time before my time, when the ladies looked so glamorous and the men opened their doors, I pictured dark lips and finger waves. I pictured old cars, and dim lights, and clubs filled with smoke. It turned out while I was there I only ended up with about 3 hours to myself, where I could take pictures, those three hours happened to be from 9am to noon, so I got what I could on a brisk short walk through the city. I cant wait to go back and get more... the last one of course is from my hotel window :)
Comment below and tell me which one is your favorite.. and why?

needless to say, I did not get the pictures I was hoping for, but there will always be a next time, and next time I WILL get them


  1. I like the tree branch the best...As Mariah would say "Can we one more time for the nostalgia" Meaning: It is a rare thing to be able to hold slight moments that bring us peace from our past.
    As an adult I crave nothing more than the security and endless optimism we seem to have naturally early in life and as we age it becomes a struggle to to keep. I'm stunned that you are so deep, I miss your imagination and perceptions: Magical and heavenly they all are! Vic

  2. I love the way you express yourself, You too are also very deep Vic, but then again, you have always been openly deep. You stay keepin it real, which is a quality I thoroughly appreciate. Thankyou for a breath of fresh air...
