This Is San Jose

San Jose, California - Monday, May 13, 2002 - by: Kevin McIntyre
Editor's note: Kevin shot these twenty-one images last Wednesday and I read his comments so that you can get a sense of things.
Fourth and Santa Clara, two blocks from home. The new library building under construction. The shell went up in two weeks, just one of the several new projects underway in the area. On Cinco de Mayo we made the mistake of going to the store. We turned left off Santa Clara onto fourth, into a traffic jam. Fourth dumps onto the 280 freeway and it took twenty minutes to go two blocks. Now, my van idles at twelve miles per hour, the diesel engine has good torque and holding the brakes down that long KILLED my arm and shoulder. Even shifting from drive to nuetral wasn't much help.
