New View, Different Angle.

Well, I have to say the neighborhood has changed.

It's really strange when you look back.

Someone important to me once said, "You can look into the past, just don't stare."
Also working down the street all those years made it very easy to come back to this area. I love it. It's old.
I used to live in the Santa Rosa building (where the Belmont Barbershop is now located), and that was at the beginning of my apprenticeship. When I lived there I used to stare out the kitchen window at the giant billboard on top of the Lee building. For a about a year it posed as hope that one day I could get new jeans too. (Gap ad) Or maybe it was something a little deeper.

I think I was just looking at the future.
