Here is an album of little things that caught my eye while walking the streets of San Jose.
Looking north from the end of Avenida 6 bis, San José, Costa Rica. It’s late afternoon, and the light is reddening as the sun nears the horizon.
Looking up at someone’s washing. Back alley fourth floor laundry. I think this was somewhere between Avenidas 7 and 8.
A miserable old pigeon. On a bench in Parque Morazán.
Café con leche at Casa Ridgway.
I don’t know why. Calle 15 between Avenidas 6 and 8.
Eucalyptus bark. At the edge of the grounds of the Museo de Arte Costarricense.
Carved door panel. Museo de Arte Costarricense.
Tile work. Barrio Amón.
Tenacious crack-dwellers. Barrio Amón.
Door detail. Barrio Amón.
Gate detail. Barrio Amón.
Can in banana. Paseo Colón.
Tiles (azulejos) at the Art Museum.
There were no devils in the details you’ve seen so far, but there’s a great devil lurking in Barrio Amón.
Here she is.
She may not be the devil, she may be some other fabulous lady. San José is a better place for her presence.
