Don't worry, we've got those too. But I've never seen any in the nicer areas.

Oops, I just realized that I labeled a couple of photos incorrectly in the original post. Below are the 2 photos with the correct descriptions.

The houses on the rim, those remind me of houses hanging off the cliffs in La Jolla, nice view but that's too crazy.

The pic of traffic heading north on the 805... you sure you weren't IN L.A.? LOL

Great pics as always.

I've seen taggings in nice neighborhoods in San Diego, one is Tierrasanta but it's usually a name or a tag crew but they get painted over after a couple days. That was in 2002, the last year I lived in SD.

Great pictures! I live in San Diego and I'm so proud of how beautiful it here. I'll add a few of mine, if I can find any that are different.

sdubranite, thanks for the photos of University Heights. Now when I proclaim its charms there are few more pictures to give it proof.

Default Amazing

Those photos are amazing. If I questioned why I wanted to move to SD before, those pictures said it all. Thank you for sharing.

Welcome to the People's Republic of Ocean Beach (known locally as "O.B."), where smoke shops, surf shops, tattoo parlors, dive bars and cheap eats rule! Known as San Diego's version of Haight-Ashbury, it's a place for hippies, surfers and other colorful characters. Though it sounds rough, it's actually a pretty safe area. Interestingly, just south of here is the Sunset Cliffs neighborhood, which is home to many million dollar plus homes. I'll do a photo tour of that area another time. In the meantime, enjoy this one now.

First Stop, Dog Beach










The San Diego River ends here


Nearby is the Robb Field Skate Park




Newport Avenue - O.B.'s always vibrant main drag








Totally O.B.
















Typical O.B. housing stock


Ugly-ass apartments a block from the beach


Another dive bar






The O.B. Pier




Beach shacks....and I do mean "Shacks"
















Girl Power (Actually, I saw alot of girls surfing on this day)












The higher up the hill you go, the less hippie and more expensive it gets
