I took a long bike ride around north county San Diego last week to get more practice using my new camera. I came across a cluster of retired lifeguard towers on Ponto Beach. It was a little sad to see these once-proud icons of the beach dethroned from on high.
The new towers have a unique look and I haven’t decided if I like them yet. The color is as obnoxious as a blue port-a-potty that I can only hope will fade under the California sun. What can I say about that shape? With the towers closed for the winter, it looks slightly menacing with those weird angles. I’m curious to see how the towers change when they’re in full bloom this summer.
