Please welcome guest blogger, Richard!   Richard lives in San Diego and his hobby is, in his words, “Just taking photos with my old camera during a refreshing walk and jotting a few quick observations on my blog.” Well, his “old camera” does a great job, but his “eye” for catching the essence of San Diego in his pictures is amazing.

June 14 was Flag Day and Richard’s blog post “Flag Day in Downtown San Diego” struck a chord with me. Flag Day in San Diego in 1965 is a memorable day for me. From the day I arrived in San Diego as a Navy Wife, I felt like I was welcome.  I had heard all the stories about military cities and how badly the servicemen were treated. It was a tough time and public disapproval of the Viet Nam War seemed to transfer to the men fighting that war.  Flag day rolled around and I was awestruck by the flags — there were literally flags everywhere. They flew from San Ysidro north to La Jolla.  San Diegans were proud to be living in the United States, and they weren’t afraid to show that. They respected the servicemen who protected the United States and always had a kind word for them.  Keep the flags flying, San Diego!

Here are a few of Richard’s photos from “Flag Day in Downtown San Diego”.  http://coolsandiegosights.wordpress.com/2014/06/14/flag-day-in-downtown-san-diego/
