Chee Chee In Downtown San Diego
When I lived in San Diego, I walked past Chee Chee Club hundreds of times. Besides the walking, there is a bus stop next to it so I did my fair share of waiting in front of the club as well. For years, every time I was within sight of the place I wanted that to be the time I would finally go inside and have a drink. That day never came and now that I have moved away from San Diego, it is possible that it never will. At night the pink neon sign lights up an area of the sidewalk on the corner on 9th and Broadway and I always thought that would make for a great photo but I never did that either. I guess I took it for granted that I was living in San Diego and that I would always have time to take more photos and visit a specific bar.
Anyway, the photo above is my only photo of the front so I hope you already see what the moral of this story is. Take photos of everything, all the time. You never know when you might be looking at something for the last time and all of a sudden something you saw everyday on your morning commute becomes something you can only see if you travel. Don’t let hesitation turn something you want to photograph into a Chee Chee, like it did for me. Cheers!
