To See a World You Otherwise Could Not See


Photographer: Brian Reynard
Photo taken when: Wednesday, January 5, about 7:45 AM
Where: A vacant lot at Van Ness and Grove.

Brian sent us this photo of plastic block lettering leaning against a Civic Center area wall, arranged to read “To See a World You Otherwise Could Not See.”

“This is lovely,” he says “and it won’t last long.”

The display, he says, “arrived this morning.”
