I entered the annual "Best of San Marcos" photo contest through the City of San Marcos and won first place! My image, Discovery Street, will be featured in the next issue of San Marcos 360 magazine as well as on the city's website, promotional materials and other city publications.
The image holds significance in the sense that this particular area along Discovery Street is due for development in the next few years. The future "Creek District" infrastructure will include two new bridges for flood relief (the area always floods when it rains) but from what I can tell, they are going to preserve a lot of the open space. When we first moved to the neighborhood I was taken by the pure country feel of this road and after several years, the novelty has yet to wear off. It reminds me of the feeling I used to get when my family would travel out to the country from NYC for the weekends. Ah, that peaceful, easy feeling.
San Marcos 360 magazine, the City's news and recreation guide, is published three times per year. The next issue is due out in April 2018.
